Kawase Hasui - Travel and Nostalgic Landscape

Kawase Hasui: Travel and Nostalgic Landscape

A collection of works by woodblock print artist Kawase Hasui (1883-1957).

Kawase was prominent designer of the shin-hanga (“new prints”) movement, whose artists depicted traditional subjects with a style influenced by Western art. Like many earlier ukiyo-e prints, Hasui’s works were commonly landscapes, but displayed atmospheric effects and natural lighting. Hasui designed approximately 620 prints over a career that spanned nearly forty years. Towards the end of his life the government recognized him as a Living National Treasure for his contribution to Japanese culture. (Wikipedia)
