- Himeji Castle -

Setsugi Yamada


The beautiful woodblock print "Himeji Castle" is by Setsugi Yamada (1903–1979). This print captures the grandeur of the famous castle, known as the "White Heron Castle" for its white exterior and elegant design. Surrounded by colored leaves and with a few birds flying in the blue sky, the scene is both beautiful and serene. The artist's signature is in the lower left corner of the image. The printer's name, "Furukawa Seikichi," and the carver's name, "Ito Susumu," are on the bottom margin. This print is hardly on the market because it was not for sale.
