"PAGODA AT HOMMONJI TEMPLE, IKENOUE",

-1954

Later edition ORIGINAL

Image size 9.50" x 14.75"

Condition "Pristine"-never laid down-full margins-no tears, no folds, no creases, no foxing, no stains-PERFECT! Good bleedthrough on verso (see scan). Complete with HASUI signature and Sui (see scan) and authenticated by Watanabe cartouche and seal.


Master HASUI's use of deep, rich, royal blues, contrasted by the moon is inspirational. The colors are rich and lush. This print is truly elegant. Scan shows slight discoloration on margins..this DOES NOT appear on the actual print! This print is stunning! Our scan does not show the true depth of color and beauty of this print.
A must for any HASUI collector.
