Artist: Kawase Hasui
Title: Night at Shinobazu Pond (Yoru no chihan(Shinobazu no ike))
Date: January 1931 (Showa shichinen shigatsu saku)
Two willow trees are seen in silhouette against the reflected lights of Tokyo across Shinobazu Pond. There is a walking path midway that shows shrubs, lanterns and people all as dark shapes reflecting against the water. This park exists largely intact to this day in Ueno in central Tokyo. This design is highly sought after in Japan, probably due to the popularity of the park. With an early “Doi Sadaichi” seal.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
