  • Sold.

Artist: Kawase Hasui
Title: Calendar Print Proof of Sailboats

Shimotsui. Three old-fashioned sailboats glide past clusters of green and yellow islands. Hasui was very strong on nostalgia at this point, as it seems doubtful that this type of watercraft would be seen at this time in the 20th century. This is the pictorial portion of a calendar that would have had the days of two months printed below in English. Extremely scarce.

Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
