Nishijima Katsuyuki – 西嶋勝之 (b. 1945) – Traditional Houses in Saga – 嵯峨の化野の伝統家


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 like this one, to pieces much larger, which are strikingly impressive. 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. He does highly accurate studies of ancient places and the street that inspired this piece can bee seen here. It is situated near this temple and tourists will always visit both places.
