Hasui: Kegon Falls, Nikkô (Nikkô Kegon-no-taki)
Artist: Kawase Hasui
Title: Kegon Falls, Nikkô (Nikkô Kegon-no-taki)
Date: 1931, autumn
Beautifully executed view of this famous waterfall. Narazaki has written: “The force of the cascading waterfall would be difficult to convey in the woodblock medium, looking staid and unrealistic, and such works are rarely successful. But this is an excellent piece, in the depiction of the power and the volume of the water”. Rare, oversized (nagaban) work.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
