  • Sold.

Artist: Kawase Hasui (1883-1957)
Title: Spring Moon, Ninomiya Beach 春の月(二宮海岸)
Date: 1932, March

A full moon, pure white, reflects on the shimmering waters off of Ninomiyo Beach. A lucky visitor has the beach to himself, and his figure is dwarfed by the enormous pine tree that stretches out protectively over the scene. The color of the beach is a soft green, which indicates that this is an unfaded example. We can assume that this work was printed in the 1940s/50s.
