Hakozaki Hachimangu Shrine, Kyushu, 1938  by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Hakozaki Hachimangu Shrine, Kyushu, 1938

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 - Lovely scene of the Hakozaki Hachimangu Shrine in Kyushu. Tall pine trees frame the view, casting a dappled shade across the grounds below. Lanterns on tall pillars flank the entrance gate of the building, with two women in colorful kimono strolling past a stone lion statue at right. An attractive design with beautiful bokashi shading in the sky and ground. A nice choice for display.
