Winter in Aizu (large)
In this early interpretion of Aizu in Winter, Saito has created a most interesting image; two figures in the foreground are shown from the back, their interesting silhouette clearly offset against the snow. Our eye is drawn deeply into the landscape - its village houses, trees and hills, as we follow a group of people in the distance, climbing upwards on the rising path. Sentry-like, cone-shaped trees appear to form a protective wall on either side. This unique Print is delineated in delicate gradations of different shades of grey, set against the black and white of ground and trees.
