Unknown8 - Bridge at Sunset- 1.jpg

This is a vintage wood block print, not an original wood block. It is a gorgeous print that was professionally framed in the 1950’s and is ready to hang. I have no idea how old the print actually is. The print inside the matting measures 9¾ x 7¼ inches. The overall dimensions of the framed picture is 15½ x 13½.
On the backing of the picture frame is marked, “Original woodcut print by Uchida Hide “Seta Too Bashi” (Bridge At Seta).” There is some very minor foxing around the sun on this print but it blends in and is not a detraction in my opinion. There are no other flaws that I can find.

Artist Bio: KOTOZUKA, EIICHI was born in Osaka in 1906. He studied at the Kyoto Specialist School of Painting and in the late 1940s was one of the four artists who founded a co-operative publishing company called Koryokusha in an effort to gain an artistic expression free of the major houses. Tokuriki, Tobei and Tasaburo were the other three involved. He has created quite a number of woodblocks covering unique scenes of Japanese tradition, flowers, landscapes and wildlife. He was a member of the Seiryusha Group of Liberal Artists and Died in 1979.
