Munakata Shiko| Landscape


"Speed was Munakata’s essence, the self-taught artist painted, sketched, and carved at a furious pace. Primarily celebrated as a woodcut artist, he also created a robust body of works on paper, equally at ease with calligraphy, painting, and lithography. With his bold, expressive lines and sketch-like appearance, Munakata developed an innovative style that remained a constant across a remarkable range of mediums and formats." (Tiffany Lambert, Curator of the exhibition "Shiko Munakata, A Way of Seeing", Japan Society, New York, 2021.)
