Shotei Takahashi, Snow, Landscape, Shin-Hanga, Original Japanese Woodblock Print

Early 20th century

About

Artist: Shotei Takahashi (1871-1945) Title: Nihonmatsu in Winter Date: Early 20th century Dimensions: 17 x 38 cm A snow scene in the town of Nihonmatsu in Fukushima prefecture. Two silhouettes pause by the canal, a lantern in one of their hands emitting a warm glow. The water is still and the thick snow coats the entire landscape. Such quiet scenes are common subjects amongst shin-hanga artists. Place names held a particular importance for Japanese art and literature. Artists would call upon certain places for their poetic, historical or seasonal significance. Visiting somewhere lacking in either of these was somewhat contrary until after the Meiji Restoration, when artists begun to search out places outside the established poetic tradition. For Shotei Takahashi, as well as his contemporaries, the tranquil beauty of a small town like Nihonmatsu could be a worthy subject as any.
