Tokuriki Tomikichiro - Born in Kyoto, Tokuriki Tomikichiro spent his entire career in the city. After initially studying Nihonga or Japanese style painting, Tokuriki switched to woodblock prints in 1924. Although best known for his shin-hanga landscape prints, Tokuriki's real passion was sosaku hanga or creative prints. He enthusiastically promoted sosaku hanga, and set up his own publishing company called Matsuku after WWII to produce his designs as well as those of other artists. He taught block carving and wrote extensively on the subject of woodblock prints, while also exhibiting internationally. His modern sosaku hanga prints are expressive with bold line work and shapes, while his traditional shin-hanga views more closely resemble ink and wash paintings. Tokuriki successfully bridged these two major twentieth-century styles, and was highly influential in the development of younger artists.
Tenryu Temple Postcards - Lovely image from a postcard series by Tokuriki depicting Tenryu Temple in Kyoto throughout the year. Founded by the Shogun Ashikaga Takauji in 1339, the temple suffered fire and damage many times, with most of the buildings rebuilt in the Meiji era. It is known for its beautiful garden around Sogen Pond, and has been designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site. An attractive series published by Tokuriki himself, with unused postcard format on reverse. The first time we've offered these designs.
