Matsushima, 1936 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Matsushima, 1936

Tsuchiya Koitsu - After moving to Tokyo at age fifteen, Koitsu studied for many years with the woodblock artist Kobayashi Kiyochika. Known for his beautiful landscape prints with a dramatic use of light and shade, Koitsu was one of the leaders of the shin-hanga or new print movement in 20th century Japan.

Comments - Handsome view of Godaido Temple on one of the islands in Matsushima, a group of hundreds of small islands dotted with pine trees. A red bridge leads to the island with the red shrine building beneath the pines. A boat sails past below and a warm orange glow spreads along the horizon as the sun sets, the clouds in dark shadow above. An attractive design.
