Original Ito Yuhan (1882 - 1951) Japanese Woodblock Print
Sacred Bridge, Nikko, circa 1930s - 1940s

Comments - Beautiful and rare shin-hanga view of the Shinkyo or Sacred Bridge in Nikko as evening fall. The warm light of the setting sun fills the sky with orange and golden light, also reflected on the shimmering surface of the water below. Most unusually, Yuhan's woodblocks were printed without the use of a black key block to evoke a soft look reminiscent of a watercolor painting. A lovely, luminous design.
