Nezu Shrine, 1934  by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nezu Shrine, 1934

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 - Lovely winter landscape of a geisha crossing the snow at Nezu Shrine, a soft glow shining from behind the tree at right and illuminating the ground and the edges of the lantern and snow-covered tree. Snowflakes fall gently through the dark sky. A serene, quiet image in a softly muted color palette.
