Kazuyuki Ohtsu: The Seasons Boxed Notecards

The sweet curvature of branch and blossom balances the strong lift of mountain and bamboo in the landscapes of Kazuyuki Ohtsu. His woodblock prints are poetic contemplations, drawing us into tranquil scenes of the Japanese countryside. The colors he uses are elemental, deep, and true—expressive without drama. Ohtsu belongs to a generation that renounced the division of labor found in most print studios, preferring instead to master each step in the demanding process. After a long apprenticeship to the renowned master woodblock artist Kiyoshi Saito, Ohtsu struck out on his own, painting his original sketches, carving the woodblocks, and making the prints.

Four of his harmonious artworks reflecting the changing seasons are reproduced in this notecard assortment. Contains five each of the following images: Tsuruga Castle and Cherry Blossoms, 2010 Summer at Ōze, 2000 Ginkgo Tree in Autumn, 2020 Remaining Persimmons, 2016. Printed in full color on recycled paper with soy based inks. Contains 20 blank cards, 5 of each design, with soft white envelopes. Measure 7 x 5 in.
