by Tokuriki, Tomikichiro - 徳力富吉郎

Artist:Tokuriki, Tomikichiro - 徳力富吉郎
Title:The Famous Spot of Fallen Fuji - 倒富士の名所
Medium:Watercolour - 水彩画
Format:Oban - 大判, 38.5 x 26.6cm (image size)
Artwork Code:10541-Tokuriki_Tomikichiro
Notes:This is a rare and obviously one-of-a-kind watercolour used as the 'shita-e' (preparatory drawing) for the woodblock print series "Thirty-Six Views of Mt Fuji". It would appear that this particular scene was not selected for inclusion in the final 36 scenes. In early 2010 I was fortunate to be able to acquire 32 Tokuriki watercolours. Print title in the image area. Artist signature at lower right.
The series was first published between 1939 and 1940. See the full series from the first edition here. The title "倒富士" (Rei-Fuji, Fallen Fuji) is now more commonly written "逆さ富士" (Sakasa-Fuji, Reverse Fuji).

This artwork is from my personal collection and is not for sale.

He stayed in Kyotofor his entire career and was a leader of the Kyoto Sosaku Hanga. He graduated from the KyotoCity School of Fine Arts and Crafts and after that from the KyotoCity Specialist School of Painting. While he began his career in the painting field, he found his true calling in the woodblock print field and was enthusiastic about the reemergence of woodblock prints in 20th century Japanese art.
