Hasui: Mount Asahi Seen from Mount Shirouma
Artist: Kawase Hasui
Title: Mount Asahi Seen from Mount Shirouma
Series: Souvenirs of Travels, Third Series
Bold contrasts in texture and tonality characterize this design, which is somewhat atypical of Hasui’s more pedestrian-friendly canon. The outlines of the clouds are done with relief printing. A sublime Taishô-era work.
Condition: Excellent impression and color; very good condition. Very minor toning.
