Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Masterful Images The Art of Kiyoshi Saito presents the story of this idiosyncratic artists ascent to international success, whose rustic work possessed an immediacy far from the refinement of a Hiroshige or Hokusai. Travel and recognition brought new subjects, as the artist lingered in France, Tahiti, Mexico, and India to capture scenes that appealed to his sensibility. Encompassing the full range of Saitos oeuvre, the 90 prints reproduced here are complemented by an interpretive essay from Barry Till, curator of the museums Asian art collection.
"In 1990 the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria published an exhibition catalogue entitled Woodblock Prints by Kiyoshi Saito with an essay by Barry Till. The present publication is in part based on that previous publication, which is now out of print."
