Castle

 

Japanese Color Woodblock Print

Castle

by Takagi Shirō, 1970

IHL Cat. #492
Pasture Scene

About This Print

A castle rises above the trees and hills but this scene is stolen by the intense blue sky.  The artist has reused the blocks from his below earlier work Evening over the Castle.

Hirosaki Castle, built in 1611, is the likely model for this print.
