||"Ohashi Bridge in Rain"
||Consigned by a knowledgable Florida print collector/dealer.
||LARGE 12 7/8 x 19 1/4
Superbly executed shading, life-like shadowing
and "wet" appearance; nicely detailed.
||Nearly Excellent. Fresh, strong colors. (Very faint mat-line image edges--otherwise
absolutely flawless. Laid-down onto thin acid-free backing.) An amazingly fresh painting.
||Beautiful scene of a lively bridge crossing--an image that has drama, movement and
conveys the pace at that time in Japan on a rainy day.
The wooden planks on the bridge look and feel wet.
Well known as a painter of impressionistic landscape watercolors, in 1935 Yokouchi also began
self-carving and printing his own woodblock prints--producing a total of 8 self-published designs.
A unique, truly ONE-of-a-kind artwork. (Learn more)
Reminiscent of Hiroshige's prints--this masterful work is clearly finest watercolor we've ever encountered.
