Hasui (1883 - 1957) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kiso River, Inuyama

Series; The New Eight Best Scenery of Japan

The New Eight Best Scenery of Japan - Fantastic chuban-sized version of a Hasui series originally published by Bijutsusha in the late 1920s. These striking prints feature beautiful views of traditional Japanese landscapes, rendered with fine detail, sophisticated color, and soft bokashi shading like the originals. This rare chuban set was issued in 1974 by the Ukiyo-e Hanga Publishing Society. Lifetime, oban impressions of these subjects are extremely rare, so these smaller versions are a wonderful opportunity to acquire a lovely Hasui design.

Kiso River, Inuyama - Beautiful view of Inuyuma Castle perched atop a hill above the Kiso River. A couple birds wheel through the violet sky as evening falls, a single boat on the water below. The texture of the rocky shore in the foreground is repeated in the foliage of the trees on the far bank. An attractive, quiet design with soft bokashi shading.
