This woodblock print depicts a bamboo forest in Sumizuri-e style (monochromatic woodblock). Bamboo shown in sumi ink is called “Bokuchiku” in “Bunjin-ga” (literally painting). The work depicts naturalistic views of bamboo forests. The artist illustrates the graceful but strong nature of these trees as they bend but do not break. Bamboo is a motif used in Japanese culture to represent resilience. This print is identical to “Bamboo and the Crescent Moon” except there is no moon.
Accompanied by the orginal mat with Uchida description of print in English. Mat is 19″x13.8″. Minor wear and toning. Lightly hinged to the mat.
