Untitled (Persimmons with Full Moon in Winter), Japanese Woodblock Print, Tokuriki (1902-2000). At least, I can't find a title. Famous for his mastery of blending of similar colors, Tokuriki sets off a superb blend of grays, blues and white with a basket of persimmons, the still scene lit by winter moonlight. The details are clear, vivid, and distinct. The moonlight is strong enough to throw shadows on the snow. This is a strong print on light-weight paper with good bleed-through; the image is clearly visible on the back of the print. The print is vivid, with all the details clear. There is no visible damage to the image itself, though there is some very slight creasing in the left and lower margins. The print may have been part of a set as there is a pencil-written "5-O" in the low right margin (see my other auction for "5-I"). Above this is a carver's seal that I have not translated. There is a signature block in the lower left, below the persimmons. Image size is approximately 10.25" x 15" and margin to margin, 11.25" x 16.25".

Artist Bio: TOKURIKI TOMIKICHIRO(1902 - 1999) - Tokuriki was born and raised in Kyotoand was influenced by the local art scene from childhood. 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. He was influential in the development of new artists later in his career and set up his own publishing company called Matsukyu.
