Impression Very Fine. Skillfully executed "bokashi" shading to sky, distant mountains, water, and foreground; amazingly life-like reflection; light "gauffrage" to clouds, Fuji's snowfields, boat's planks, and rocks; finely carved details.
Condition Excellent. (No flaws noted.)
Reference/Illus Narazaki #392; Hotei #588.
Comments Striking lakeshore/Fuji scene. Reissued in Fall 2003 by Watanabe using their original woodblocks from 1953; other such recently reissued Hasui prints are discussed in "June 2002 - Five Additional Hasui Prints Re-issued by Watanabe."
