A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

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.

Lake Hakone, 1938 - Atmospheric illustration of Lake Hakone during an early morning rain. Tall trees frame a view of a single boat on the water and mountains in gray silhouette along the distant shore. Raindrops slant across the scene, and a tree trunk is reflected in the water on the path where a tiny figure beneath an umbrella runs around the corner at left. A lovely design.
