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 - Beautiful evening view of Mt. Fuji under a glowing full moon. In the foreground, a narrow bridge cross a river dotted with reflections of the moon. On the opposite shore, windows glowing orange dot the dark silhouette of rooftops and trees. Mt. Fuji is rendered in soft shadows beyond. A lovely shin-hanga postcard print by Koitsu, with beautiful color and fine bokashi shading.
