Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nagoya Castle, 1937

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 spring scene with the tower of Nagoya Castle rising up into the sky. Clouds of delicate pink and lavender cherry blossoms fill the foreground, and the sky is shaded a rosy lilac color along the horizon as the sun sets. A lovely, classic shin hanga landscape with wonderful soft shading. A terrific choice for display.
