Available works by: Elizabeth Keith  Scottish (1887 - 1956)  

Elizabeth Keith was a Scottish printmaker and watercolorist. Her work consists of prints depicting Asian life and culture, a fascination she acquired when she traveled to Tokyo at the age of 28. She would continue her travels throughout Asia, visiting China, Korea, and the Philippines, gathering more subjects for her artwork. Born in Scotland, Ireland in 1887, Keith was a self-taught artist. She learned the methods of traditional Japanese woodblock printing, emulating the work of Katsushika Hokusai, Ando Hiroshige, and Kitagawa Utamaro. Keith’s work gained popularity not only in Japan, but also in London and New York. Landscapes, people in traditional and common dress, and cultural rituals were central to her imagery. She died in 1956 in the United States.
