Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kofuku Temple, Nara, 1937

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 - Beautiful Koitsu design of rain falling at Kofukuji or KofukuTemple in Nara. Willow trees frame a view of a lake with the temple spire rising high above the tree in the distance. A lone figure under an orange umbrella strolls along a path on the far side of the water. A lovely landscape, beautifully shaded with shimmering reflections in the water. A wonderful shin-hanga print.
