Welcome to my ever-growing gallery of original Ukiyo-e, Shin Hanga, and Sosaku Hanga woodblock prints, paintings and scrolls. The prints in my gallery are my own personal copies (not for sale). I display them here for the benefit of those who, like me, have an interest in this wonderful artform.

I have named my personal gallery 'Ohmi Gallery', because the area of Japan in which I reside has been known for centuries by the name 'Ohmi'. I live around the cities of Otsu and Kusatsu, the 53rd and 52nd stations on the famous 'Tokaido road', and I work at Ritsumeikan University.

As you may have already noticed, I am particularly interested in the shin hanga artist Tsuchiya Koitsu, and I have published a comprehensive raisonne on his artwork here.

Artists listed in my gallery include:

Ukiyo-e and Meiji-era Artists: Shin Hanga Artists: Watercolor Artists: Modern Artists:

Tsuchiya Koitsu
Born near Hamamatsu City (Shizuoka Prefecture) with the name "Koichi", Koitsu moved to Tokyo at the age of fifteen. He had planned to apprentice with Matsuzaki, a carver for the artist Kobayashi Kiyochika, but instead, he became Kiyochika's student and moved into his home to study art and print design. Koitsu lived there for 19 years, working and studying with Kiyochika. The landscape prints of Tsuchiya Koitsu are notable for their dramatic use of light and shadow. Much of his skill at depicting light can be attributed to his studies with Kiyochika.

He first designed woodblock prints during the Sino-Japanese war (1894-1895), but he only really came into his own after he met Watanabe Shozaburo, the founder of the shin hanga print movement. He went on to design ten prints for Watanabe. Koitsu also designed numerous prints for the publisher Doi Teiichi, and a few prints for Kawaguchi, the Kyoto publisher Baba Nobuhiko, the publisher Tanaka Shobido, and the publisher Takemura.

My collection of Shotei woodblock prints can be viewed, here. They are mostly from original pre-war editions.

Torii Kotondo (1900-1976) and Torii Kiyomitsu
Kotondo was born in Tokyo with the name Saito Akira. At the age of 15 he was adopted into the Torii family by Torii Kiyotada (Torii VII) and given the name Kotondo. He studied under Kobori Tomone and the bijin-ga artist Kaburagi Kiyokata. In 1925 he began exhibiting bijin-ga paintings, and then designed almost all his woodblock bijin-ga prints from 1927 to 1933. In 1941 he became Torii VIII (Kiyotada V) after is adoptive father's death.

My collection of Torii Kotondo bijin-ga woodblock prints can be viewed, here. They are all from original pre-war editions.

Torii Kiyomitsu is the 9th headmaster of renowned Torii school of Kabuki-e pictures. She is a daughter of Torii Kotondo and became the first woman headmaster of traditional kabuki-e schools in 1982. Her works were recognised by the Japanese government, which presented her with an ""Oujihosho"" (A type of Japanese medal of honour) in 2005.

Twelve Aspects of Fine Women
This series of gorgeous bijin-ga prints was published by Ishukankokai in the 1980s as a limited edition. It has been said that the edition size was only 100 prints, with the series being sold out in a very short time. The two prints 'Heron Daughter (Sagi Musume)' by Tsunetomi Kitano (1880-1947) and 'Expression of Eyes (Hitomi)' by Kiyoshi, Kobayakawa (1898-1948) are the shining stars of this series and are much sought-after by collectors.

See this series here.

Ito Shinsui
Displayed in my Shinsui gallery is a rare pre-war (circa 1931) print series of gorgeous 'bijin' (beautiful women) wearing Takasago-dyed kimonos. Takasago dyeing is a special fabric dyeing process developed in Japan that dates to the 1600s. Prints from this series are machine printed or possibly lithographic items, and they are the finest examples of pre-war machine printing I've seen to date. According to a seal in the lower margin of each print they were printed using a patented "KI Banton" platemaking process, so probably an advanced technique for that era. Each scene is printed on washi paper (contains the usual chain lines) and without close inspection it is difficult to determine that these are not woodblock prints. Interestingly, it would appear that none of these scenes are copied from Shinsui's other works (woodblocks or paintings), so I assume that Shinsui composed these especially for this series.

My small collection of Ito Shinsui bijin-ga prints and scroll paintings can be viewed here.

Japanese Scrolls
For several years now I've been resisting the temptation to open yet another front in my Japanese art collecting 'addiction' -- but like any serious collector who has a weakness for 'bijin-ga' (Japanese for 'beauties paintings') I can resist no longer. Because they are 'unique' (each scroll is hand painted and one-of-a-kind) Japanese scrolls are very collectable, and as such one would expect that they command a high price in comparison to their woodblock print counterparts (for which there are hundreds of copies for any one scene). Surprisingly this is not the case -- prices for bijin-ga scrolls, while being expensive, are generally no more expensive than limited-edition woodblock prints by the same artist. If a pre-war strike of an Ito Shinsui bijin-ga limited-edition woodblock sells from $2000 to $6,000 or more, why do Shinsui scrolls not sell for several times more than this? I guess this is one of the 'contradictions' we find when collecting art, and it is something I certainly intend to exploit until scroll prices increase to their true value.

My growing collection of Japanese bijin-ga scrolls by many of the main early Showa-era artists like Ito Shinsui, Kaburagi Kiyokata, Uemura Shoen, Watanabe Ikuharu, and Hirano Hakuho, can be viewed here.

Takeji Asano
Takeji Asano was born in Kyoto in 1900 and underwent a long and intensive art training - first at the Kyoto City School of Fine Arts, from which he graduated in 1919, and later at the Kyoto City specialist School of Painting, with graduation in 1923.

In 1930 Asano participated in the series "Sosaku Hanga Shin Kyoto Junikagetsu" (Creative Prints of Twelve Months in New Kyoto). Further landscape prints followed in the 1930s. After the war in 1947, Asano created the series "Kinki Meisho Fukei" (Noted Views in the Kyoto-Osaka Area), and in the 1950s Asano created many works that were published by Uchida. In 1954, he created the series "Kinki Hakkei" (Eight Views of Kinki). Asano died at the age of 99 in 1999.

See my gallery of Takeji Asano woodblock prints, including a full set of the very rare series "Eight Views Of Kinki" here

Mamoru Hiyoshi
Born in Tokyo, Hiyoshi Mamoru studied art with Okada Saburosuke and graduated from the Tokyo School of Fine Arts. In the early 1950's, he designed brightly colored woodblock prints of Korean people and their customs. The prints were published by Kyoto Hanga-In. Many of Mamoru's prints are signed in English, M. Hiyoshi

See my gallery of Hiyoshi Mamoru woodblock prints, including those from his Korean Customs theme here

Bakufu Ohno
Bakufu Ohno (1888-1976) was born in Tokyo. He moved to Kansai after the great Kantou earthquake in 1923. Ohno exhibited oil paintings at Teiten in 1929. He is an honorary member of the Hyogo Prefecture Academy of Fine Arts, and a member of Taiheiyogakai. Ohno produced many landscape and fish prints, including the Great Japanese Fish Picture Collection (Dai Nihon gyorui gashu) in 1940, which was published by Kyoto Hanga-in; blocks were carved by Matsuda and Kikuda, printed by Shinagawa, Nagae, Uchida and Ohno.

See my gallery of Bakufu Ohno woodblock prints here

Jokata Kaiseki (b. 1882)
Twenty-Five Views of Mt. Fuji in the Four Seasons
Jokata Kaiseki is a noted 20th century shin-hanga print artist whose most famous print series, shown here, is the "Twenty-Five Views of Mt. Fuji in the Four Seasons", published circa 1929. Kaiseki's scenes of Japan are beautifully executed landscape views with a painterly quality. Kaiseki created a series of works with an intense level of detail that was just being introduced into Japanese woodblock prints at that time. Finely carved and printed, the resulting subjects are breathtaking scenes of Fuji in different seasons of the year.

See my gallery of Jokata Kaiseki woodblock prints from this series here.

Shuzo Ikeda
Shuzo Ikeda was born in 1922 in Kisakata-machi, Akita Prefecture. He graduated from school in 1945, taught in Akita from 1946--1955, and then worked in Tokyo as a Hanga artist. Shuzo carefully employed the texture of wood in his prints (see 'Flower and Boy' below), and specialised in stylised wide-eyed children (see 'Butterfly' below) with flowers, birds, insects, sacred stone images, and native dolls. He often signed his drawings as S. Ikeda.

See my gallery of Shuzo Ikeda woodblock prints, all first editions from his children theme here

Tatsumi Shimura
Tatsumi Shimura is known for designing gorgeous bijin-ga prints. Born in Takasaki, Gunma Prefecture, Shimura's real name was Sentaro Shimura. He lived in Yokohama from 1910 and in 1921 he began studying art with Yamakawa Saiho, a well-known designer. As a young man, Tatsumi worked as an illustrator for newspapers, serialized novels, and magazines. From 1948 to 1952, Shimura designed several woodblock prints of beauties that were published by Kato Junji. Later he collaborated with the Japanese Institute of Prints to create a series called "Five figures of modern beauties" (Gendai bijin fuzoku gotai). After a solo exhibition on his sixtieth birthday in 1967, Shimura devoted his career entirely to Nihonga, or Japanese style painting.

See my gallery of Tatsumi Shimura bijin-ga woodblock prints here -- all limited editions.

Keiichi Takasawa
Keiichi Takasawa was born in Gunma Prefecture in 1914. In 1936 he attended Nihon University and later studied with Tsuguharu Fujita (a strong influence). During the war Keiichi worked as a war reporter. He did many illustrations and covers for women's magazines, music record covers, etc. He did many 'nikushitsu' paintings of 'bijin-ga' and the best of these were often published as woodblock prints. His bijin-ga prints always depicted the same slender-necked beauty (who may have been his wife), often in erotic poses. He usually signed his name using both Japanese kanji and Roman script.

Kiyoshi Nakajima
Bibliographic details are limited for this artist. Kiyoshi was born in Manchuria, China, in 1943. He was a self-taught artist and illustrator, and he became active in the 1980's when he produced a series of Bijin-ga (prints of beautiful women) that were published by Kyoto Hanga-In.

See my gallery of Kiyoshi Nakajima bijin-ga woodblock prints here.

Kaoru Kawano
Kaoru Kawano was born in Otaru, Hokkaido in 1916, and studied at Kawabata art school. He exhibited with Nihon Hanga Kyokai in 1944, but later was unfortunate to became a prisoner of war in Siberia. In 1949 he resumed exhibiting with Nihon Hanga Kyokai, and subsequently with Kokugakai in 1952. He moved to Tokyo in 1958, and participated in international competitions and solo exhibitions in New York, Seattle, Chicago, and elsewhere. His works are characterised by highly textured abstract representations of children.

Other Bijin-Ga and Child Portrait Artists
Under Construction

  • Hoshino Gashu (1932-)

  • Hoshino Gashu was born in Saitama-Ken in 1932. Gashu's style is similar to that of the bijin-ga masters Kiyokata and Shinsui, in that his paintings express the purity and refreshing eloquence of his bijin subjects.

  • Shimizu Etsuo (1953-)

  • Shimizu Etsuo can only be described as a genius, a prodigy! He is a master painter of photo-realistic oil paintings of female forms and still life, and his outstanding ability is unsurpassed in this field of art. In Japan his paintings are rare and sell at a high premium.

See my gallery of Bijin-Ga works here.

Hao Boyi
Have you ever heard of Chinese woodblock prints? For a long time they have been considered the 'poor cousin' of their Japanese counterpart, but having recently discovered the works of the artist Hao Boyi I can without doubt say that this should no longer be the case. As you will see in my gallery, Hao Boyi prints are absolutely stunning!

See my gallery of Hao Boyi woodblock prints, all limited editions here

Chen Yongle
Chen Yongle was born in the Yunan Province of China in 1954. He is currently the President of the Yunnan Research Institute of Fine Art, and is a member of various art organisations and committees including the Chinese Artists Association, the Chinese Graphic Artists Association, and the Association of the Artists of Chinese Craft and Art. Chen Yongle's prints have been exhibited at many international events and his works can be seen at Fine Art Museums in Asia (China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong), the USA, and Europe (France, Belgium, Holland, Germany).

I classify Yongle's style as been "Sino-Egyptian", like that of Hao Ping, and we can imagine his paintings gracing the walls of any of the great Egyptian pharos' tombs. I would rate Chen Yongle as being without a doubt one of the top five eminent Chinese artists.

See my gallery of Chen Yongle woodblock prints, all limited editions here

Hao Ping
Hao Ping was born in the province of Yunan, China in 1952. His woodblock prints are characterised first and foremost by their square format and large size. Most are of 67 x 67cm in dimension but several of his prints reach close to 90 x 90cm. This, coupled with his use of bright colours, often via 15 colour blocks, produce spectacular scenes via his unique melding of the traditional woodblock technique with the modern medium of oil/acrylic pigments.

Tamami Shima
Tamami Shima was born in 1937 in Hirosaki, Aomori prefecture. She was a graduate of the Women's College of Fine Arts (Tokyo) in 1958. Her work was promoted in the West after she received a travel grant from the College Women's Association of Japan in 1962. Shima's designs are notable for their use of texture, and especially for her striking use of various woodgrain patterns within a single image. Her prints from the 1960s often feature rhythmic fanciful birds.

See my small but growing collection of Tamami Shima woodblock prints, all first editions, here

Toru Mabuchi
Toru, son of the wood carver, Mabuchi Rokutaro, was born in Tokyo in 1920 and graduated from the craft design section of Tokyo School of Fine Arts in 1941. Member and judge of several art associations. Represented at Tokyo International Print Biennale in 1962. Taught at Hiroshima University. His plates are sometimes composed of many small pieces of thin wood adhered like mosaics. Toru's prints often deal with subjects such as landscapes, still life, haniwa, or pottery.

See my small but growing collection of Toru Mabuchi woodblock prints, all limited editions, here. They are all from the estate of renown woodblock print collector Robert O. Muller.

Kunihiro Amano
Amano was born in Hirosake, Aomori Prefecture in 1929, and graduated from Aomori Prefecural Technical School. He taught himself woodblock print making and first exhibited his prints in 1955 with the Nihon Hanga Kyokai. In his early prints he often used strong woodggrain as an element, and is best known for his images of fantastic birds or fish (as seen below). As his technique matured his prints became more abstract in design.

Sugiura Kazutoshi and Katsuda Yukio
Born 1938 Kyoto. Kyoto Municipal College of Fine Arts; Kyoto National Museum Japanese classical painting. Permanent Collections: Brooklyn Museum and numerous private collections. Solo exhibitions in New York, Portland, Maryland, Washington, Australia, Canada, Japan.

My collection of Sugiura Kazutoshi kacho-e serigraphs can be viewed, here.

Yukio Katsuda was born in Kyoto in 1945 and since the 1960s has been active in the medium of serigraph (silk screens). His prints carry no title other than a number that represents the chronological order of his works, however, the verso of framed prints sometimes carry official paper notes carrying conventional titles in Japanese. His prints are often heavily inked (a spectacular example is Number 77 Sunflower), and thus have a unique, near-3D appearance -- it is this feature that first drew me to Katsuda's works. His major works cover natural themes such as birds (mostly owls), flowers and plants, and landscapes.

Katsuda-san has his own gallery webpage here. Interestingly, he goes by the name "Katsuta" on his official website, yet he signs his prints "Katsuda", so I'm not sure which surname spelling is correct.

My collection of Katsuda Yukio serigraphs can be viewed, here.

Sanzo Wada
Sanzo Wada graduated from the Western-style paining division of Tokyo School of Fine Arts. Studied in Euroope 1907-1915; traveled to India and Burma. Appointed Member Imperial Arts Academy in 1927 and taught at Tokyo School of Fine arts from 1927.

See my gallery of Sanzo Wada prints here, including the series "Occupations of the Showa Era in Pictures".

Tokuriki Tomikichiro
Tokuriki Tomikichiro (1902-1999) was one of the members of the Sosaku Hanga movement. He was born in Kyoto where he attended the School of Fine Arts and Crafts. After World War II he established his own publishing company, Matsukyo Publishing Company. Tomikichiro Tokuriki was a passionate Sosaku Hanga printmaker. However he earned his living with prints in Shin Hanga style. Today everybody knows him for the Shin Hanga style prints published by Uchida and Unsodo.

See my gallery of Tokuriki Tomikichiro prints here, including prints from his series "Ten Views of Japan".

Kotozuka Eiichi
Kotozuka, Eiichi (1906 - 1979): Graduated in 1930 from Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting. He did several series of Kyoto scenes, including Eight Snow Scenes of Kyoto published by Uchida, and a series of flower prints made with Tokuriki Tomikichiro and Kamei Tobei published by Unsodo. Associated with these two artists in Korokusha, a subsidiary of Tokuriki's publishing company which subsidized their sosaku-hanga. Reference: Helen Merrit and Nanako Yamada, Guide to Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints: 1900-1975, p.78

See my gallery of Kotozuka Eiichi prints here, including rare preparatory watercolour sketches ("genga") as well as his series "Eight Kyoto Snow Scenes".

Inuzuka Taisui
Little is known about the artist Inuzuka Taisui. His works include large flower and plant prints in the Western style, published by Kawaguchi and Sakai in 1929.

See my gallery of Inuzuka Taisui prints here, including several rare original watercolors from the Kawaguchi Estate that were used as the basis for his woodblock prints..

Kobayashi Kiyochika
This is an exceptionally beautiful and important series by Kiyochika for a number of reasons:
(1) we can see Kiyochika's mastery of 'kosen-ga' at its finest. Kosen-ga are paintings that express an effect of light and gradation of shadows as main techniques. To my knowledge no other series, earlier or later, expresses such perfection of kosen-ga as this series does.
(2) the beginnings of the Shin-Hanga movement can be clearly witnessed in this series, several years before Kawase Hasui, arguably the greatest Shin-Hanga artist, commenced his career as a woodblock print artist.

See my gallery of Kobayashi Kiyochika prints from the series "Views of Japan" here.

Masao Ebina
Published by Yamada Shoin in 1953, this 54-print set by Masao Ebina (mistakenly known as Masao Ebihara in the West) contains woodblock print illustrations that cover every volume of "The Tale of Genji" by Lady Murasaki Shikibu. I have been fortunate enough to obtain a rare complete set of prints from this series.

Ukiyo-e

Triptych Prints

See my gallery of Mizuno Toshikata prints here, from his gorgeous bijin-ga series "Thirty-Six Examples of Beauties"..

Utagawa Kunisada
Kunisada Utagawa (1786-1864) started his career as the chief pupil of the head of the Utagawa school, Toyokuni I. Born with the name Sumida, to a family of ferry boat operators, Kunisada was given his name by his master when he began his career at the ago of 15. By 1807 he was publishing his first books and his first actor prints were published in 1808.

Kunisada was a prolific artist with over 20,000 designs to his credit. Because Kunisada changed his name several times - identifying has prints can be quite confusing for the less-experienced Ukiyo-e collector. In Ukiyo-e literature and catalogues he is mostly referred to as Kunisada or Toyokuni III.

See my gallery of Utagawa Kunisada prints here, from his series "Ukiyo-e Comparison of Genji", also known as "The Tale of Genji"..

Kunisada II
Kunisada II Utagawa (1823-1880) was a pupil of Kunisada (Toyokuni III). He signed his prints as Baido Kunimasa or Kunimasa III. He married his master's daughter in 1846 and took his master's name. After his master's death, he started using the name of Toyokuni IV.

See my gallery of Utagawa Kunisada II prints here, from his series "Murasaki Shikibu Genji Karuta"..

Kunichika
Kunichika (1835-1900) was a pupil of Chikanobu and of Kunisada. He chose the name Kunichika which is a combination of the names of his two masters. His favorite subjects were Kabuki actors and historical scenes. Kunichika is considered to be one of the last masters of the traditional Ukiyo-e style.
