Hirosaki Castle

Artist:Jun-Ichiro Sekino
Description:In this extraordinary, early etching, the young Sekino has filled the image densely, framing the castle with trees that spread their branches across the picture plane. The stone walls of the moat are described in fine, detailed pattern; focus is on the castle above which is minutely described, yet appears distant, almost ephemeral and is surounded by light.

Sekino has carefully handled light and shadow creating a special mood in this remarkable Etching
