Moon Light in Yasaka Pagoda, 1951 by Takeji Asano (1900 - 1999)

Original Takeji Asano (1900 - 1999) Japanese Woodblock Print
Moon Light in Yasaka Pagoda, 1951

Takeji Asano - Born in Kyoto, Takeji Asano helped form the Kyoto Creative Print Society in 1929. While designing traditional shin-hanga landscape prints, he studied carving and printing, achieving a great technical skill in carving. After WWII, he created many woodblocks of scenery and famous sites in and around Kyoto in various seasons. His colorful sosaku hanga works, self-carved and self-printed, have a real graphic appeal, with bold line work, sweeping views, and handsome compositions. His woodblock prints are a great choice for the modern collector, and make attractive framed displays.

Comments - Lovely scene of Yasaka Pagoda against a night sky twinkling with stars. The pagoda towers above the rooftops and trees, with the yellow lights of the city spreading out into the distance. A handsome shin-hanga design with fine bokashi shading in the evening sky.
