Bamboo Forest, Right- Kotozuka, Eiichi

Sold

This woodblock print depicts a bamboo forest in sumi-e style. 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.

Accompanied by the orginal mat with Uchida description of print in English.  Mat is 19″x14″. Minor wear and toning. Lightly hinged to the mat. A few tears to the mats. Kento cut in the lower right corner of the margin is used to align blocks and is not a flaw.
