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.

First Edition Thirty Views of Kyoto - Handsome first edition design Tokuriki's lovely "Thirty Views of Kyoto" series, published by Uchida in 1936. These charming shin-hanga designs illustrate famous places and events in Kyoto, celebrating life throughout the seasons, rendered in a painterly style with subdued colors and soft shading. Each print is mounted to stiff board in the nearly square shikishiban format, ready for display, with a label on the reverse (see example below). First edition images from this series are rarely seen on the market.
