Original woodblock print, Published by Watanabe - Kawase Hasui (1883-1957) - Tsubosaka Temple, Nara at night 大和 壺坂寺 - Heisei period (1989-2019)

Note: Kawase Hasui (川瀬 巴水1883 – 1957) was a Japanese artist. He was one of the most prominent print designers of the shin-hanga ("new prints") movement.

Regarded as a major Japanese landscape artist of the 20th century, Hasui’s prints are characterized by their serenity of mood and flawless composition. While his landscapes are markedly modern, these shin hanga prints yearn for a Japan past. The finest prints and drawings of this period have a unique and immediate appeal that rests upon traditional virtues of delicacy, poise and restraint.
