"Qualities of colour, light, and atmosphere, a constant in Japanese printmaking, also fascinated Hiroaki (Shotei) Takahashi (1871-1945). For some designs, he varied the pigments, bokashi, and block combinations in otherwise identical landscape compositions to explore the atmospherics of different seasons or times of day. A dusk setting provided ideal conditions for representing the chilly evening air for the Inatori Bay view depicted in this print."
"Hiroaki has constructed a triple play of light effects in this composition. First, the colour relations of the work are established in the bokashi transition from dark, inky blue in the upper sky, down through a play of yellows into intense orange on the horizon, shifting into a sea-blue that attracts the eye forward to the blue-grey wavelets of the foreground."
"This is complemented by the warm golden light of tiny junk windows and their reflections glowing on the water. The play is echoed again to the right, in the house lights and their reflections on the water in the middle distance." (via The Museum of New Zealand)
