Japanese woodblock print

NOTES/DATE/ETC: c1930 -- Nishimomiya Publisher (1938-60's printing from original block-set)

SIZE IN INCHES: 9 3/4 x 14 1/2 inches (+ margins)

COMMENTS: Publisher's inventory "sold out."

ITO YUHAN (1882-1951) was primarily a landscape painter, but designed an extraordinary group of woodblock prints during the 1930's for the publisher Nishinomiya. Yuhan's print designs are usually characterized by vivid colors and subtle gradations. They look similar to watercolors, as they lack an outlining key block. Yuhan's soft style evokes the romantic beauty of Japan's past. The absence of human figures adds to the sense of quiet timelessness.
