||"Moon at Megome"
("Megome no Tsuki")
||1930 (circa 1946-57)
||Consigned by a knowledgable collector/dealer.
||Red "6mm-seal" (lower right)
(used only 1946-57,
||9 3/8 x 14 1/4
||Very Fine. Skillfully executed "bokashi" shading to sky, trees, and clouds; light "gauffrage"
to tree and full moon; nicely detailed carving.
(Light ink-smudging right margin.)
Deep saturation of colors. Clean frontside and verso.
(Light toning; few scattered marks; consignor indicates print was removed
from top-tipped backing --
small margin tear repaired verso.)
||Narazaki #169; Hotei #165; Blair, Toledo 1936 #12.
||Beautiful moonlit scene done almost entirely as an "aizuri"
(shades of blue) print. One of
Hasui's most popular images. Always gorgeous -- becomeing hard-to-find. Nice!!
