Hasui: Hall of the Great Buddha (Nara Diabutsuden)
Artist: Kawase Hasui
Title: Hall of the Great Buddha (Nara Diabutsuden)
Although fond of shadow-filled scenes in his later years, this one shows comfort and peace, with cheerful blossoms brightly shining past the entrance to this famous temple. We see a cluster of visitors bow respectfully to the 16m “Great Buddha” that is positioned to the right of this scene.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
