One of modern Japan’s most prominent artists, Kawase Hasui is known for atmospheric prints of Japanese architecture and landscape. Hasui was also influenced by Western realistic art, particularly photography, and in concert with the opening of Japan’s cultural and political borders, his imagery reflected an increased emphasis on shading and linear perspective. Hasui created more than 600 woodblock prints, a dozen of which are collected in this wall calendar.
