An excellant Japanese watercolour depicting a misty morning in a garden with cherry trees and pagodas. The watercolor is signed 'Y. Ito'. Ito Yoshihiko (Yasuhiko) lived from 1867-1942 and was a Western-style painter. Fond of painting as a child, he studied first under Tamura Soritsu in Kyoto. In 1888 he graduated from Kyoto Prefecture School of Painting and went to Toyko where he worked briefly with Koyama Shotaro, then entered Harada Naojiro's school, the Shobikan. He helped organize the Kansai Art Academy, later becoming its director and his painting at the first Bunten received special recognition. This is an original watercolor - not a print. However I am able to run a giclee' print on heavey bond watercolor paper actual size for only $250. This piece has been re-framed with archival materials since these photos were taken, and is in excellent condition. The painting measures 18" x 12" and framed 26" x 20".
