by Tokuriki Tomikichiro (1902 - 1999)
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.
Comments - Lovely view of the entrance gate at Ishiyama Temple on a moonlit night. Two stone lanterns flank the scene, with large paper lanterns hanging in front of the guardian statues housed in the gateway. The scene is bathed in soft moonlight from a glowing full moon high in the night sky. A beautiful atmospheric scene with subtle color and soft shading. Published by Uchida.
