Kawase Hasui 2015 Wall Calendar
The woodblock prints of Kawase Hasui (Japanese, 1883–1957) are decidedly of the seasons, bringing the viewer onto a lakeside bank amid gathering snow or through a sunny garden where irises brush bare ankles. Clouds roll or roil above varied landscapes given depth with the inked layers of the shin hanga, or “new prints,” movement. Hasui created more than six hundred images during his career, collaborating with publisher Watanabe Shozaburo’s team to transform his watercolor sketches into prints.
