Fuji Arts Contemporary Exhibition Part II - Over the summer we enjoyed exploring and selling from a recently acquired collection of contemporary prints purchased in Japan. This month we’re excited to post the second part of this collection as a follow up exhibition of contemporary designs. We’re looking forward to sharing these beautiful prints, all selected with an eye to the modern Japanese aesthetic. Have a look at the group and click on the Contemporary Japanese design link to see the entire collection.
Villages Houses and Hydrangeas, Kyoto, 1990 - Lovely view of a village house in Kyoto during a spring rain, with colorful hydrangeas in pink, violet, and lavender blossoming in the foreground. Tall trees frame the traditional thatched roof home with lush foliage filling the background. Seiji Sano moved to Kyoto in 1978, where he studied woodblock printmaking with noted artist Masao Ido. A beautiful design and a wonderful choice for display. A fine limited edition print, pencil signed, titled in Japanese, dated '90, and numbered 133/150 in bottom margin.
