Tokuriki Tomikichiro - Tokuriki was born and raised in Kyoto and was influenced by the local art scene from childhood. He stayed in Kyoto for his entire career and was a leader of the Kyoto Sosaku Hanga. He graduated from the Kyoto City School of Fine Arts and Crafts and after that from the Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting. While he began his career in the painting field, he found his true calling in the woodblock print field and was enthusiastic about the reemergence of woodblock prints in 20th century Japanese art. He was influential in the development of new artists later in his career and set up his own publishing company called Matsukyu.
The Nikko Toshogu Shrine at Tochigi in Summer - Lovely scene of a beautifully carved and colorfully painted building at Toshogu Shrine in Nikko, the view framed by the tall trunks of pine trees. A stone lantern sits on the cobbled courtyard in the foreground, with heavy woods in the distance rendered in soft silhouette. An attractive image.
