ALTHOUGH HASUI HAS BEEN WIDELY PRAISED for his masterful compositions of Japan's red temples and snow scenes, perhaps his finest depictions are of night time scenes usually under a full moon. These subtle prints like the one shown here, are clear evidence of why Hasui was named a Japanese national living treasure in 1953. Click on the thumbnail below to see an enlargement.

Known for his exquisite landscape prints, Kawase Hasui was one of the most prolific and talented shin hanga artists of the 20th century. He designed around six hundred prints total, mainly for the publisher Watanabe Shozaburo, although he also worked for several others briefly. This is a Watanabe print made from the original wood blocks.
