"Snow at Ueno, Kiyomizudo" -1929
Print size 16.5" x 11.5"
(Full Oban)
Post-War Strike ORIGINAL

Pristine gallery condition. Full margins; never laid down; no tears, folds, creases or foxing. This print is perfect in every way.

Good bleedthrough to verso. Complete with HASUI signature and sui (see scan). Authenticated by HASUI signature and sui.

One of the 16 prints designed by Master HASUI for Kawaguchi and Sakai. The Kawaguchi and Sakai prints are considered by most experts to be among Master HASUI's finest works. Particularly the lavish snow scenes.

This stunning image is considered by most Shin Hanga experts to be Master HASUI's most dramatic "Snow Scene". The use of the sophisticated printing techniques of bokashi (gradation of colors), and gofun, which gives the print an embossed feel and depth of image are used extensively throughout this print.
