Artist Biography:
Kaiseki is a noted 20th century contemporary print artist who specialized in beautiful scenery from Japan in the 1920s and early 1930s. His most famous series is the one from which we are offering prints this evening -- Twenty-Five Views of Mt. Fuji in the Four Seasons. Kaiseki's lovely scenes of Japan, and especially his Fuji series, are beautifully executed landscape views with a painterly quality. Utilizing the modern techniques being introduced and explored in the 1920s in the wood block print world Kaiseki created a series of works with an intense level of detail that was just being introduced into Japanese woodblock prints at that time. The resulting subjects are breathtaking images of various scenes of Fuji in different seasons of the year.

定方塊石は明治15年岡山生まれの画家で、塊石の雅号は東京に出ていた若い時の雅号。この時代に描いた富士図には当時の人々の生活が良く描かれている。下は明治末に描かれたと考えられる。北麓の当時が見える貴重な画と言える。
