Hasui: Clearing After a Snowfall on Mount Fuji (Taganoura Beach) (Sold)
Artist: Kawase Hasui
Title: Clearing After a Snowfall on Mount Fuji (Taganoura Beach) 富士の雪渓(田子の浦
The peak of Fuji-san is colored pink with the clear rays of sunset following a day of heavy snowfall. Hasui has chosen to frame the famous mountain with the snow-laden boughs of pine trees. This is an early, unfaded example from the first edition, sealed Doi Sadaichi. This exact work has been published in the 2013 Tokyo Bijutsu catalog on Hasui that was authored by the Hasui expert Hisao Shimizu. Provenance: from the personal collection of the late Hisao Shimizu. As the slightest amount of fading on this work strongly diminishes the impact of it, it is always recommended to look for unfaded examples, as here.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
Dimensions: ôban (39.4 x 26.4 cm)
Publisher: Doi Sadaichi
Literature: Hotei #266. See Hisao Shimizu’s “Works of Kawase Hasui”, published in 2013 by Tokyo Bijutsu. This exact print is shown on page 90.
