Koitsu (1870 - 1949 )

Koitsu Tsuchiya's prints immortalize Japan's scenic beauty. Through subtle effects of light and shadow, Koitsu endows his work with an aura of bewitching beauty. Born in 1870 outside Hamamatsu, his given name was Koichi. At the age of 15, he moved to Tokyo to study woodblock printing under Matsuzaki, a carver for the ukiyo-e master Kiyochika Kobayashi. However, he soon left Matsuzaki and became a student of Kiyochika himself. For 19 years, Koitsu lived in Kiyochika’s home, studying the art of woodblock printing. His first prints (1894-95) were war scenes of the Sino-Japanese war. He later worked as a lithographer. In 1931, a chance meeting with the publisher Watanabe changed the course of his career. From that time on, Koitsu specialized in Japanese landscape prints in the Shin Hanga style.
