Kotozuka, Eiichi – Takagamine Road in Kyoto – S1794

Kotozuka, Eiichi – Takagamine Road in Kyoto – S1794


Charming depiction of Takagamine Road in the artist’s home town of Kyoto, lined with handsome tile-roofed buildings. The street rises steeply to the right, a man carrying a yoke over his shoulders making his way past an ox tied to the side of the road. A light rain falls over the scene, the sky darkening to gray. A beautiful modern composition with bold black line work and soft shading in the sky. This shin hanga print is a classic in the transition to a more modern woodblock design.

Format is Dai Oban tate-e. Not examined outside of frame. From an estate sale in Naples, FL.
