Kazuyuki OhtsuIn the perfectly balanced compositions by Kazuyuki Ohtsu (Japanese, b. 1935) we find tranquil scenes of natural beauty, where fallen snow quiets the land and autumn leaves erupt in a riot of color. Born into a family of silk weavers, Ohtsu began the study of printmaking at 19. He apprenticed with celebrated artist Kiyoshi Saito for 40 years. With the passing of Saito, Ohtsu set out on his own career. Like his teacher, he paints the original pictures that serve as blueprints for the hand-carved blocks, then inks the blocks and prints the images. Ohtsu’s artworks forsake an earlier period’s use of strong outlines, instead relying on elemental colors and gentle shapes to depict a harmonious, idealized view of the Japanese countryside.
I can always find cards that are perfect for holidays and thank-you notes.
I love this artist so thrilled to find these cards.
Many persimmons left on this tree--sour?
Fast service...Quality products...Beautiful artwork.
I prefer sending Asian themed holiday cards as an homage to my Japanese roots. This card, in particular, features persimmons which were one of my late mother's favorite fruits.
What a wonderful tradition! It is lovely that you found a card that honors her memory so specifically. :)
