Village of Yuge, 1st edition pencil signed and numbered Tatsuo Kawashima (1939 ? ) Village of Yuge Tatsuo Kawashima- Tatsuo Kawashima has pursued the art of the Japanese print since the beginning of his career. He was born in Kyoto and immersed himself in the strong tradition of Japanese art in Kyoto as well as the beautiful scenery of that ancient city. His style is instantly recognizable and reminiscent of Saito, Sekino and some of the other mid and late 20th century artists Kawashima produced most of his print designs in the 1980’s and is now retired.
