Kiyoshi Saito: Green Field with Temple Pagoda
Artist: Saitō Kiyoshi (1907-1997)
Title: Green Field with Temple Pagoda
Date: ca. 1960
A deep green field, full of texture, fills the foreground, while the deep blue sky, full of texture, fills the background of this view of a village surrounding a temple. It may be Nara or Kyoto, two places of deep history that Saito returned to over the years. The charm and folk-art feeling of Saito’s work overlays a sophisticated mastery of design. What stands out about this work are the deep textures that convey the richness of the scenery.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
