Tsuchiya Koitsu, "Snow at Ukimodo, Katata"
Pickup currently unavailable
This exceptional night scene by Tsuchiya Koitsu is a fine example of Koitsu's talent as a woodblock print artist. One of just a handful of designs created in collaboration with Watanabe Shozaburu, the composition shows Ukimodo (Mangetsu-ji) on the bank of Japan's Lake Biwa in a snowstorm. The soft details in the design and blue colors are calming while the spot of light from the lantern draws the viewer in. A rare, first-state printing!
