Hirosaki Castle - Jun-Ichiro  Sekino

Hirosaki Castle, 1935

12 x 9 in

Description: In this extraordinary, early etching, the young Sekino has filled the image densely, framing the castle with trees that spread their branches across the picture plane. The stone walls of the moat are described in fine, detailed pattern; focus is on the castle above which is minutely described, yet appears distant, almost ephemeral and is surrounded by light. Sekino has carefully handled light and shadow creating a special mood in this remarkable Etching
