Kawase HASUI (1883-1957)
"Futatsudo, Nikko" -1929
Print size 16." x 11."
(Full Oban)

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).

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.

This lovely print is believed to be a later edition struck from the original blocks (circa 1980s).

This lovely rain scene is absolutely breath-taking. The shaded dark green trees in the background contrast dramatically with the vivid red shrine. The sophisticated printing technique of bokashi (gradation of colour) is used extensively throughout the print
Futatsudo, Nikko, 1929
Kawase Hasui (1883 – 1957)

Futatsudo, Nikko

A wonderful temple complex nestled in the towering pines. The rain has fallen and a figure covered against the wet weather walks along the path. The rich colors and beautiful design of this print make it a Hasui favorite.
