Kofukuji Temple Pagoda - 興福寺塔
by Kotozuka, Eiichi (1906-) - 琴塚英一

Artist:Kotozuka, Eiichi (1906-) - 琴塚英一
Title:Kofukuji Temple Pagoda - 興福寺塔
Date:1950s (this artwork: Early post-war strike)
Publisher:Uchida - 内田
Medium:Woodblock - 木版画
Format:Long scroll - 掛軸, 31 x 79cm (image size)
Artwork Code:11934-Kotozuka_Eiichi
Notes:This is an obviously rare (one of a kind) trial print of the corresponding watercolour base sketch (genga) that you can find elsewhere in my collection. Uchida's intention was to issue this scene as woodblock prints mounted to scrolls. In the end Uchida published this scene as double-oban-sized woodblock prints for framing (although they are also very rarely seen).

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