A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Okada Koichi - A contemporary of Hasui, Okada Koichi is best known for his striking views of Mt Fuji from a circa 1950s series called "Twelve Views of Japan." Born in Tokyo, Koichi studied with woodblock artist Ishii Hakutei, and exhibited his paintings at the national juried Teiten and Nitten exhibitions. Published by Unsodo in Kyoto, these lovely shin-hanga designs show the sacred mountain in different seasons, framed by cherry blossoms or capped by snow, bathed in sunlight or seen at nighttime beyond the twinkling lights of the city. His works are a great choice to collect or display.
