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:||Watercolour - 水彩画|
|Format:||Long scroll - 掛軸, 37 x 80cm (image size)|
|Notes:||This is an obviously rare (one of a kind) watercolour base sketch ("genga") for the corresponding woodblock print 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). Note the red lines where the scene was truncated to double-oban size.
This artwork is from my personal collection and is not for sale.
