KAWASE HASUI, who was born in Rogetu-cho in Shiba Ward (now Shimbashi), loved painting from the time he was a young boy, and learned how to paint from Bokusen Aoyagi, who lived in Shiba Shimmei-cho. At the age of 27, when he became the  student of Kiyokata Kaburaki, he was given the trade name Hasui. After marriage, he lived in Atagoshita-machi in Shiba Ward, which was called Sendai Manor, and continued his activities as an artist. When he was 35, Hasui had some dramatic developments with woodblock prints produced by his fellow student Shinsui Ito and the woodblock merchant Shozaburo Watanabe.

Hasui received Watanabe’s patronage and published his first work “Shiobara Okanemichi” (The Okane Path at Shiobara) with him. He went on to successively release works that lyrically depicted the landscape of various places in Japan and was acclaimed the leading artist of newly styled woodblock prints at home and abroad. There are quite a few works about his hometown of Shiba, and his works include the pieces he produced to commemorate his registration as a cultural asset: “Sojoji no Yuki” (Snow at Sojoji Temple), “Tokyo Junikagetsu” (Twelve Months of Tokyo), “Azabu Ninohashi no Gogo” (Afternoon at Ninohashi in Azabu), “Shiba Zojoji” (Shiba Zojoji Temple), “Shin Tokyo Hyakkei” (One Hundred Views of New Tokyo), and the print for sale here, “Shiba Daimon no Yuki” (Snow at Shiba Daimon).
