Product Description
Kazuyuki Ohtsu: Winter Serenity Holiday Card Assortment
The thirteenth child born into a family of silk weavers, Kazuyuki Ohtsu (Japanese, b. 1935) began studying traditional woodblock printmaking in Tokyo at the age of eighteen. For forty years Ohtsu served as an assistant to Kiyoshi Saito, a woodblock artist at the forefront of the sosaku hanga movement, before working on his own. Breaking with the traditional division of labor practiced by Hiroshige, Hokusai, and virtually every other Japanese printmaker who preceded them, the sosaku hanga (creative print) artists handled every step of print production—they painted the original pictures, carved the woodblocks, and printed the images.

In Ohtsu’s perfectly balanced compositions we discover places nearly forgotten, tranquil scenes of natural beauty and harmony. Ohtsu eschews modern urbanism and takes us to rural villages, parks, and still waters. His prints forsake an earlier period’s use of strong outlines and instead rely on colors that are elemental, deep, and true—expressive without drama.

Ohtsu’s artworks have been exhibited and collected worldwide.

Contains five each of the following holiday cards:
Camellia in Snow, 2008
Sudden Snow, 2003
Mt. Bandai and Lake in Snow, 2013
Piled Snow, 2005
