Portrait of a Mountain Man
In an oval, egg-like form, a man in profile relates to the bird; both by means of simplified shape and lines of beard and feathers. In the distance a row of mountains again relates Azechi's image to nature, of all the creatures, man is but one.

Bird and Man appear repeatedly in Azechi's work; the two are always in close contact, related in color and detail and bonded in a special way.

Sound of the Mountain
Five mountain men, united in a circle gaze upwards at the mountain, perched above and beyond - as if on the horizon. Are they contemplating the allure of the mountains, as well as the danger of a climb? It is hard to tell, but the Print is both charming and fascinating.

Village Landscape
The serenity of the mountain village is reflected in Azechi's use of calm blues, grays, and greens. The wave-like patterns on the hills in the background emphasize the feeling of continuity and fluidity. The circular orientation of the houses to each other implies their inter-reliance, which is contrasted by the telephone poles' role implication of connection to the outside world.

Mountaineer
In this Print, the Mountaineer relaxes with cup and cigarette in hand. With his erect, elongated face and figure, his firm and unwavering gaze, he appears both surprised and alert. Whatever our impression may be, our attention is held by the integrity of his image.

Man with Bird
Man with Bird stands erect, his body simplified, one hand on his heart, the other holding a little bird, expressive of emotion and care. He looks out as if spellbound and awed by the expanse of nature; behind him, in the distance, a plume of smoke rises blue, on the red volcano.

We appear to sense that man is alone and surrounded by vast forces of the natural world. This is materfully expressed by Azechi with few, strongly felt compositional devices. Beautiful colors of varied blues and grey, bright red, white and black add to the distinction of this work

Mountaineer with Rope ( Zairu)

Mountain Man with Bird and Axe is a composition of simplified, geometric shapes which harmonize in their sensitively handled relationship to each other. Color plays an important role; the mountaineer's black figure contrasts with the white bird, axehead and angular, mountain shapes to right and left. As frequently in Azechi's work, the man looks out as if absorbed with an inner vision.

Kozu Osaka
A magnificent, very fine Print of the temple overlooking the city at night.

The evening scene is softly illuminated, the large tile roof looming upwards, its fine lines gently outlined, with every detail crisp and clear. A single star is a focus in the sky and the far away city lights shine softly, below, extending distance and depth.

Narasaki writes: "Positioned on a promontory, the Kozu shrine bathed in moonlight. Deserted it has grown still. The Osaka streets below come alive; the lights in the evening fog look like the smoldering tips of cigarettes. Night has just fallen, and a solitary star burns bright in the dark blue sky.."

Miyajima no Tsukiyo

Three lit Lanterns in the foreground and a mighty pine frame the image and lead the eye beyond, towards the Lake with the famous gate and the blue hills beyond. Three small lit lights on the far shore repeat the element of three's in harmony with the lighted lanterns, whose golden glow contrasts with the, otherwise, variable blues of this lovely night scene.

The Artist has created a number of these fine scenes of nature at night, illuminated by the moon, which is sometimes seen and at other times lends its glow to the delicately lit images of sea, river or lake.

Wonderful, large KIYOSHI SAITO. The Artist uses one of his favorite motifs: a house secluded amongst trees. The solid, vertical growth of trees, with splayed roots, like footprins on the forest floor, appears to stand guard over the distant house.

Saito has used an unusual device of strirations, a 'combing' pattern of lines, that contrast with the otherwise clearly defined shapes, thus giving this image an air of mystery.

Colors are black, brown, white, grey and rust.

In this print Saito's beautiful use of the carving block's wood grain is demonstrated and is particularly striking in the Lantern, which is further enhanced by silver mica.

In this print contrasting compositional elements are very clearly defined: the bright, open walkway leads to stacked dark forms, where the walk abruptly stops; the rounded shape of the green tree contrasts with the elegantly rising temple roof; excellent use has been made by Saito of the block's woodgrain - the planes of sky, temple wall and walkway echo each other and tie the composition together, as does the cross shape of the path, repeated on the forward temple wall. Delicate stones in front add a light, almost playful touch, in contrast to the bold, dense shapes beyond.
