Comments HARDCOVER version--very FEW remain. This AMAZING reference showcases what this publisher selected as the finest 100 masterpieces out of approximately 600 lifetime images by Kawase Hasui, unquestionably the premier landscape artists of the twentieth century. Contains 100 large, full colour illustrations which embody the enormous variety of snow, moon and rain scenes for which Hasui is so well known.
Preface, Introduction, and Essay about Hasui (totaling 24 pages of text) by Kendal Brown offer a comprehensive understanding of both the "shin-hanga" movement and Hasui's extensive contributions to this artform. A wonderful reference on Hasui--if you can only afford one reference of Hasui's works, consider this one to own. (Learn more.)
