Famous Places of Tokyo - Tokyo Meisho Zue - Gohonmatsu - Famous series.

Kiyochika Kobayashi 1847-1915

From the series, "Tokyo Meisho-zu" (Pictures of the Famous Places in Tokyo). "Gohon-matsu, Ugetsu". The faint moonlight peeks out from the clouds at Gohon-matsu (Five Pines) on the Sumida river bank in a rainy evening.
The series was made during 1876 - 1881 using "kosen-e" style, which Kiyochika had been famous for.
He used the traditional ukiyoe style emphasizing asymmetrical composition and simplified forms. In the same works he used also Western perspective, cast shadows and often shading for modelling. His prints were based on wate rcolour sketches. He imitated thin, overlapping washes or sometimes the hatchings and scribblings of a pencil. These style clearly owed much to Western-style painting and photography.
