Arashiyama: Kyoto – by Suzuki Harunobu

Harunobu Japanese wood block print by Suzuki Harunobu (1725 - 1770).  I like the simple compositional daring of dividing up the page into two, then using this to develop tension between the characters.  (You’ll have to excuse, however, the label inserted at the bottom.)

On the following page you can find an interesting article on Harunobu's excellent pupil Isoda Koryusai (act.1770-1790s)

Click here for more articles on Ukiyo-e woodblock prints by for instance: Kuniyoshi, Utamaro, Hokusai, Shunga (erotic prints)...etc.
