Katsuyuki Nishijima - Kyoto artist Katsuyuki Nishijima is known for his beautiful contemporary woodblock prints in the sosaku hanga tradition, designing, carving, and printing each block himself. Inspired by the beauty of Japan, Nishijima illustrates traditional inns and quiet streets, glorious sunsets and dusky evenings, spring blossoms and summer fields. These lovely prints capture the charm of traditional Japanese buildings and landscapes, evoking a romantic view of old Japan yet with a distinctly modern artistic sensibility. These limited edition prints are pencil signed and numbered by the artist in the lower margin. A wonderful choice for the modern collector, they also make striking framed displays.
Comments - Charming and unusual portrait of a young child by Nishijima. The background features swirling barren marks in dark brown against a lighter brown ground, adding graphic impact, and black lacquer ink adds definition to the hair. A pencil signed, limited edition. A rarely seen figural design by Nishijima, and a great choice for a collector.
