The thirteenth child born into a family of silk weavers, Kazuyuki Ohtsu (Japanese, b.1935) began studying traditional woodblock printmaking in Tokyo at the age of nineteen. For forty years Ohtsu served as an assistant to Kiyoshi Saito, a woodblock artist at the forefront of the sosaku hanga movement, before working on his own. Breaking with tradition, the sosaku hanga (creative print) artists handled every step of print production—they painted the original pictures, carved the woodblocks, and printed the images. Ohtsu’s unique compositions have been exhibited and collected worldwide. As demonstrated by the twelve works reproduced in this calendar, they are poetic contemplations, drawing us into lovely, tranquil scenes of natural beauty and harmony. More than fifty of his prints can be found in the book Kazuyuki Ohtsu (Pomegranate, 2016).
