Hashimoto Okiie ( 1899- 1993) was a Japanese woodcut artist. After working as a teacher and spare-time artist, he devoted himself completely to the artistic activity and became well known only after the publication of Oliver Statler’s Modern Japanese Prints (1960).
He specialized in prints depicting Japanese castles and gardens, as the 1946 series “Ten Views of Ancient Castles”.
Here’s a first selection of his works.
Joyce Seaman says
This is an excellent selection of prints by Hashimoto Okiie, however, your print okiie -09 is not by Hashimoto Okiie, but a detail of a print from the 1950s by Azechi Umetaro. I cannot find the exact part you publish in the catalogue raisonne, but the mark is his and the snow covered houses occur in several of his prints which are in the catalogue.
Also when you photograph prints, it is very helpful to be able to see all the information written below by the artist. In some of yours it is cut off, or only half there.
I hope you will take this as constructive criticism.
