Koitsu: Fuji from Lake Sai
Artist: Tsuchiya Kōitsu (1870-1949)
Title: Fuji From Lake Sai (Evening Glow from Lake Sai)
Date: 1938 (this edition ca. 1950)
A brilliant orange sunset sky with a yellow-tinged Fuji contrasts with the deep blues and greens of the placid Lake Sai. Two gnarled pine trees rise up in an interesting addition to the foreground. The seal at left reads Doi Hangaten, which indicates that this work was printed shortly after WWII, probably around 1950. Would make the perfect gift for the Japanophile in your circle.
