Japanese Woodblock by Hasui ‘Evening Snow at Edo River’ (1932)

Beautiful snow scene with two bijin under umbrellas as they cross the Edo River by Hasui Kawase (1887-1957) titled “Yuki no Edogawa” (translates as “Evening Snow at Edo River”) and margin dated originally as “Showa 7” (or 1932). Bears Doi Eiichi’s rectangular publisher’s seal in left margin along with the “double-offset” carver/printer seals of Harada/Hamano. Published in two versions, this is the “aizuir” (shades of blue) version. Later printing struck off of the original blocks—circa 1990’s.

Print is in absolute pristine condition—no tears, no stains, no fading. Clean backside. Image measures 9 ¼ x 14 ¼ inches.
