Tsuchiya Koitsu Japanese Woodblock Prints

Tsuchiya Koitsu (1879-1949) was a master of the Shin Hanga movement, though his first prints were of the Sino Japanese war. Born in rural Japan, he started an apprentice as a wood block carver at the age of 15. He came the attention of the ukiyo-e master Kobayashi Kiyochika in whose house he lived and studied for 19 years.

In 1931 he met the publisher Watanabe Shozaburo who was spear-heading the new Shin Hanga movement, focused on natural beauty, light, landscapes, people, birds & flowers. The Western Impressionist movement was influential in this new style of Japanese prints.

Koitsu was inspired by the new direction and began to create hauntingly beautiful scenes of Japan bathed in moonlight, sunsets and the changing seasons.
