Y .Ito Watercolor-Lakeside Scene- Misty Morning ~1920


Watercolor mounted on card stock Image size: 9 3/4" x 12" Very subtle painting Yoshihiko Ito, (1867-1942). Born in Kyoto at the beginning of the Meiji restoration, and a painter from childhood, he like many of the cutting edge of Japanese artists of the time was strongly taken by western views of art. Graduated from the Kyoto Prefecture School of Art, studied under Tamura Soritsu, and Koyama Shotaru. Helped organize the Kansai Art Academy later in life, and became its director. His work at the first Bunten, a showing by many of the famous artists of the time won special recognition. An accomplished and respected artist of the Meiji Taisho and early Showa eras, his work is represented in several museums.

Artist Bio: Y. Ito or Ito Yoshihiku lived from 1867-1942. He studied first under Tamura Soritsu in Kyoto, graduated in 1888 from Kyoto Prefecture School of Painting and went to Tokyo to study under Koyama Shotaro briefly before entering Harada Naojiro's school, the Shobikan.

Ito Yuhan's painting style is always recognizable from across the room. He signed his watercolour paintings Y. ITO. He was a very successful landscape painter as well as a woodblock print artist. He created 12 woodblock images that were published by Nishinomiya Yosaku from the 1950's (not pre-war, according to the publisher Nishinomiya), signing them YUHAN. This painting is well done in a 'Western' painting style that started in the late 1880s when Japan opened its' doors to the West and its' teachers. The popularity of this style grew into the 'shin hanga' woodblock print movement at the beginning of the 20th century. His woodblock prints have either his signature in Western script ""Y Ito"" or in kanji. Those in Western script are the earlier (pre-war) editions.
