Kinkaku-ji temple, late winter


Fu Takenaka – Kinkaku-ji temple, late winter

Original woodblock print on Washi paper. This is a recent print, numbered 112/200 and hand-signed by the artist.

The print shows the Kinkaku-ji in late winter, with the winter surroundings enhancing its already majestic beauty. It is in Fu Takenaka’s typical style, with comparatively less strong borders and outlines. The temple has been depicted much more often by woodblock artists, and it is a testament to the richness of the art the depictions never lose their intrigue. Fu Takenaka succeeded here as well with her print being unlike any other, in what might be one of her best designs.

The print is in excellent state, but it should be noted that the later editions in the series of 200, such as this one, differ quite strongly from earlier impressions. The earlier ones were printed much stonger and as such provide a very different atmosphere.

Image size (excluding margins): 32.5 * 22 cm.
