One of the most prolific artists of the shin hanga (new prints) movement, Kawase Hasui produced over 600 woodblock prints during his 40-year career. In 1956, he was awarded the prestigious title of Living National Treasure by the Japanese government.
Hasui’s Impressionist-influenced landscapes in this collection emphasize the beauty of Japan’s countryside and the changing seasons: an iris garden in spring, bright sunshine on a red bridge in summer, golden leaves in autumn, and snow on Mt. Fuji in winter.
Contains five each of the following notecards:
Mt. Fuji after Snow, Oshino, 1952
Iris Garden at Meiji Shrine, Tokyo, 1951
Nikko Shin-kyo (Shin Bridge, Nikko), 1951
