Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Yotsuya Araki Yokocho, 1935

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 image of two geisha at the entrance to a teahouse off a small lane in Yotsuya. Light spills from the open doorway, casting a rosy glow out on the street. The silhouette of a beauty can be seen in the upper story shoji window. A lovely print with handsome architectural detail and attractive color.
