Works in the collection
Lawrence Smith describes Fukazawa's style as 'rather abbreviated and lonely' ('Modern Japanese Prints 1912-1989', pg.22). This print, in a minimalist technique with an effect resembling the Chinese 'cut-paper', is a perfect example of this sentiment, one that is distinctly urban.
Fukazawa worked in a variety of printing techniques, as seen in 'Road towards the hill' (AGNSW Acc.no. 84.2000) and other colour landscape prints (such as 'Back of Mt Fuji' in the gallery's collection Acc.no. 8.1997.3). Perhaps this technical diversity prevented him from being identified with one distinct style, and this has resulted in his relatively small recognition.
