Series; The New Eight Best Scenery of Japan
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction
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.
Mount Unzen, Hizen, circa 1927 - Wonderful design of the Mount Unzen rising through the clouds at twilight, the clouds edged with pink in the setting sun. A few sailboats can be seen on the calm water, the view framed by tall pine trees. A restful, lovely scene with wonderful color and soft bokashi shading.
