Ishizaki Shigetoshi 石崎重利: Experimental View of a Coastal Waterway (Sold)

  • Sold.

Artist: Ishizaki Shigetoshi 石崎重利 (1901-1999)
Title: Untitled View of a Coastal Waterway with Many Watercraft
Date: Undated (ca. 1940)

Untitled view of a busy waterway at sunset. We see sailing boats and large motorized vessels, some of which look to be for fishing. This work has a very experimental feeling, and it lacks any type of title; it probably was never produced in an edition of any size. It has been printed on very heavy paper. Shigetoshi was born in Aichi prefecture and studied with Hiratsuka Un’ichi. He was a member of Nihon Hanga Kyokai from 1932, and contributed to the series One Hundred Views of New Japan in 1940. A beautifully printed, seldom-seen design that is a terrific example of the creative expression of the sosaku-hanga movement..

Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
Dimensions: 26.2 x 35cm
