Description
  • Title: Goyo Hashiguchi, Sanjo Bridge in Kyoto, Shin Hanga
  • Description: Artist: Goyo Hashiguchi (1880-1921)
    Title: Sanjo Bridge in Kyoto
    Publisher: Self published
    Date: 1920
    Dimensions: 48.5 x 30.5 cm
    Condition: Small tear on upper margin. Some restored tears. Faint discolouration around borders due to previous mounting.

    The Kamo River in Kyoto shimmers pristinely in its snow swept landscape. Rendered in Prussian blue, the river is all the more pristine against its white surroundings. Pedestrians crossing the bridge and passing the banks dot the scene with their snow-capped parasols. Goyo's setting and execution of this design of Sanjo Bridge undoubtedly refer back to the great landscape artist Utagawa Hiroshige I and his successors. Sanjo was known as the last stop along the newly pathed roads that joined the once old capital of Kyoto to that of Edo (now modern-day Tokyo). The Tokaido and Nakasendo gave rise to opportunities for travel, having a major effect on the arts and literature.

    Paying homage to the ukiyo-e landscape genre, Goyo uses bokashi, a printing technique of pigment gradation often used to signify the time of day. However, Goyo still implements a modern twist by way of the city's own modernisation and the naturalistic reflections in the water, usually omitted from the works of earlier masters or used consciously as Western 'exoticism'.; Artist: Goyo Hashiguchi (1880-1921)
