Lake Hakone, 1938  by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Lake Hakone, 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 - Atmospheric illustration of Lake Hakone during an early morning rain. Tall trees frame a view of a single boat on the water and mountains in gray silhouette along the distant shore. Raindrops slant across the scene, and a tree trunk is reflected in the water on the path where a tiny figure beneath an umbrella runs around the corner at left. A lovely design.
