Presented here is a soft-copy reference for the prints and other artworks of Tsuchiya Koitsu. Chigasaki Museum's "Tsuchiya Koitsu - Adoration of Scenery" (pronounced 'Fuukou Raisen' in Japanese) is an 80-page catalog containing many of Koitsu's most famous shin hanga woodblock print scenes in vivid colour. It also contains never-to-be-seen unpublished works (hanshita-e) and also Koitsu's very rare watercolour paintings. Included in this reference text are a small selection of rare prints by Koitsu's contemporaries - Kiyochika Kobayashi, Kawase Hasui, and Hiroaki Takahashi (Shotei). Although the text is in the Japanese language, it is still an invaluable reference source of Koitsu's early and later works, and when used in conjunction with my Koitsu virtual catalog on Koitsu.com it becomes a powerful tool for serious collectors of Koitsu prints.

You may also be interested in a comprehensive Koitsu catalogue that I recently published with co-researcher Tosh Doi - 'The Catalogue Raisonne of Tsuchiya Koitsu'.
