Tokuriki Shin Hanga Woodblock Fushimi Inari
Tomikichiro Tokuriki (1902-1999)is best known for his shin hanga woodblock. This image of the "Annual Festival of the Fushimi Inari" is from the month series "Twelve Months of Kyoto" (Kyō-meishō jūnikagetsu), Published 1945 by Uchida in Kyoto. This is an original February print from the album. It is still tipped into the original folder. Image area about 10" x 11.75". Very good condition with no damage.

Wonderful use of color in this print. I'll be listing the entire series of 12.

------Note. Tokuriki was the 13th generation in a family of Kyoto artists. Kyoto was the old capital and always had a flourishing art tradition and of course lively circles of woodblock print artists. The Shin Hanga movement was a revitalization of ancient woodblock practices in a modern context. There was also a parallel Sosoku hanga creative movement in which the artist carved the woodblock and printed the pictures himself. Tokuriki was accomplished in both.
