Lake Shoji, 1934 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Lake Shoji, 1934

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 - Serene view of Lake Shoji with the magnificent peak of Mt. Fuji dominating the horizon. The mountain is beautifully reflected in the calm water below, a single sailboat making its way across the lake. A few clouds dot the sky and a soft yellow glow spreads along the horizon. A lovely design with beautiful color and soft shading.
