Nikko Futarasan, 1936 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nikko Futarasan, 1936

Series; Sketches of Famous Places in Japan

Sketches of Famous Places in Japan - In the early 1960s, the publisher Hamamatsu-Do (Doi) re-released a group of classic shin-hanga landscapes by Hasui and Koitsu under the series title "Sketches of Famous Places in Japan." Using the original blocks, Hamamatsu-Do (Doi) printed the designs, which were also distributed by the publisher Oedo Mokuhansha. The series was produced in a limited edition of 200 sets of 28 subjects, very finely printed and beautifully colored. A terrific opportunity to collect a lovely shin-hanga design.

Nikko Futarasan, 1936 - Beautiful design of a lone figure walking along the pathway at Futarasan Shrine at Nikko, warm yellow light spilling from a paper lantern at the end of a pole. A torii gate leads to the complex, with tall pine trees framing the view, the scene shaded in blue and gray shadows as evening falls. A lovely, quiet contemplative design. A beautiful choice for display.
