• “Morning at Aonuma Marsh, Ura Heights” (1949) by Kawase Hasui •
Hasui was trained in both traditional Japanese ink and Western oil painting. He worked primarily as a commercial illustrator until 1918 when, inspired by the works of Ito Shinsui (1898-1972), he began to create his own woodblock prints. Hasui’s first experimental prints were published by Watanabe Shozaburo, initiating a relationship that would last the rest of Hasui’s life. (gallery sign) #admiringart
