Nishijima-san is a current elder statesman of the Kyoto woodblock scene. His pieces have been delighting lovers of traditional scenes of the city for decades. They range from dynamic, manageable medium-sized pieces, to pieces much larger, which are strikingly impressive, like this one. Nishijima-san started to exhibit by age 20 and by the late 60’s was also stencil printing. Some of his many personal exhibitions have been in Tokyo, San Francisco, Sydney, etc. and he is held in museum and private collections around the world. The original technique of applying the snow as the last part of the multiple-pass hand-printing is unique to Nishijima-san. Signed, numbered 6/500 and titled by the artist. Excellent condition. This shop, Tanakachō, is Nishijima-san’s favorite place to buy pickled foods. It was opened in 1789, and can be seen here.
