Product Description
Serenity: The Art of Kazuyuki Ohtsu Boxed Notecards
Kazuyuki Ohtsu (Japanese, b. 1935) served for forty years as the assistant to Kiyoshi Saito, a woodblock artist at the forefront of the sosaku hanga movement. Instead of the division of labor relied on by Hiroshige, Hokusai, and virtually every other Japanese printmaker who preceded them, the “creative print” artists handled every step of the production of prints themselves. They painted the original pictures, carved the woodblocks, and drew the prints.

The compositions of Ohtsu often juxtapose a close-up botanical element in the foreground with a series of planes of color that lead into the background. For subjects, he eschews modern urbanism and takes us to parks and still waters, occasionally rural villages and temples. When human figures appear, they are small and anonymous. His colors are elemental, deep, and true—expressive without drama.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
