‘Evening Glow at Sakawa Bridge’ is a quite well-known Japanese woodblock print first published in the 1930’s. This is my small watercolour painting (6” x 3”) based on it.
The artist was Hiroaki Takahashi who, some web sites claim, died 72 years ago today, 6 August 1945, during a visit to his daughter in a coastal city in Japan. He was 74 and the city was Hiroshima.
