Kawase Hasui: Boxed Note Cards

About the Artist

Kawase Hasui (1883–1957), whose specialty was exquisitely rendered landscape scenes, is among the leading Japanese printmakers of the 20th century. Often on the road in search of inspiration, Hasui brought his watercolor sketches to the printing studio of the publisher Watanabe Shozaburo, where they were transformed into woodblock prints by a skillful team. The precision of the artist's renderings is matched only by their poetic repose.

This boxed note card set contains four works by Japanese printmaker Kawase Hasui. The revival of fine-art printing in early 20th century Japan—a movement known as shin hanga—coincided with the dynamic growth of an export economy, largely focused on the United States. More American collectors bought these prints, which were made with the foreign market in mind, than did Japanese.
