Notes (this edition)?The following information was taken from the original web listing of this artwork. Often written by non-experts, there may be inaccuracies:

You are bidding on a beautiful, striking woodblock print of a red temple on a lake against a sky blue background. The colors are extremely vibrant and bright. This print is very simple and stylized. The print measures 10 1/2" x 11 1/2" and is pasted at the the upper left corner into a folder with a mat opening. I do not know the age or artist of this woodblock. I thought it resembled Tokuriki. The print had to be scanned into 2 sections so a line may appear where none exists. The print is clean and in very good to excellent condition.

He stayed in Kyotofor his entire career and was a leader of the Kyoto Sosaku Hanga. He graduated from the KyotoCity School of Fine Arts and Crafts and after that from the KyotoCity Specialist School of Painting. While he began his career in the painting field, he found his true calling in the woodblock print field and was enthusiastic about the reemergence of woodblock prints in 20th century Japanese art. He was influential in the development of new artists later in his career and set up his own publishing company called Matsukyu.
