Nikko Sacred Bridge

Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870-1949)
Description:
The Shinkyo or "Sacred" bridge at the Futarasan Shrine in Nikko, viewed from downstream, is an iconic scene which has been captured by most of the shin hanga artists. Here, Koitsu masterfully captures the subtle shadings and light values of a rainy day. There are not any publisher or craftsmen seals, so it's completely open as to when this copy was actually printed.
