Available works by: Kiyoshi Saito  Japanese (1907 - 1997)  

Kiyoshi Saito was a celebrated Japanese printmaker. Characterized by their distinctively graphic flatness, Saito’s works often feature recurring visual motifs endemic to Japanese landscapes, such as rural architecture, kimono-wearing women, and pinewood forests. His oeuvre is connected to the Japanese practice of sosaku-hanga, meaning "creative prints," a 20th-century movement motivated by self-expression accomplished through hand-made processes. He achieved recognition for his Winter in Aizu series when issued in 1938, and subsequently was among the first Japanese artists to place at the São Paulo Biennale in 1951. Born in Aizubange, Japan on November 14, 1997, Saito died on November 14, 1997 in Tokyo, Japan at the age of 90.
