Hasui (1883 - 1957) Japanese Woodblock Print
Lake Towada

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.

Lake Towada - Lovely summer scene of the rocky cliffs surrounding Lake Towada. Beautifully colored in shades of blue and gray, with shimmering reflections on the gently rippling surface of the water. A single sailboat can be seen in the distance, and puffy white clouds reach up into the sky, the edges delicately embossed to create a sense of depth. A wonderful design.
