Kawase Hasui: The Seasons Boxed Assorted Notecards
A prolific woodblock artist of the shin hanga (new prints) movement, Kawase Hasui is a chief figure among a cohort of artists who revitalized the Japanese woodblock tradition for the 20th century. This collection of notecards groups 4 compositions Hasui crafted at midcentury. Each piece focuses on a different seasonal setting in Japan, from the wintry peak of Mt. Fuji, to the springtime Iris Garden at the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo, the summertime Shin Bridge in Nikko and Autumn at Sariuwa. Though sparsely populated, the compositions capture quiet settings that invite walking, collectively capturing a glimpse of the rich seasonal marvels of the Japanese landscape.
