Tanaka Ryohei (born 1933) Original Japanese Etching
Okugusa in Kyoto, 1986

Tanaka Ryohei - Born in 1933, Tanaka Ryohei began studying etching with Professor Furuno Yoshio in 1963. His favorite subjects are the traditional Japanese houses and the rural fields around him, where man intersects with nature. His beautiful designs are drawn with delicate line work, producing rich gradations of tone and subtle textures. He often incorporates aquatint or mezzotint into his etchings to render exquisite detail. His works can be found in the collections of museums across the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Fogg Museum at Harvard University, and the Singapore National Museum. These quiet, contemplative, limited-edition designs are pencil signed and numbered, making them a wonderful choice for a collector of contemporary Japanese prints.
