Kawase Hasui 川瀬巴水, (1883 – 1957)

Kawase Hasui is considered one of the great masters of the 20th century shin hanga 新版画 (new prints) movement, a continuation of the celebrated works of Hiroshige 広重 (1797–1858) and Hokusai 北斎(1760–1849), the 19th century masters of this genre.

One of the most prolific and talented artist, Hasui designed over six hundred woodblock prints. Best known for his exceptional atmospheric landscapes, his prints depicts all types of weather at all times of the day and night. He captured the scenic wonders of Japan in sunlight, twilight and moonlight; the waters of rivers, falls and ocean; the rain, mist and mountains.

In July and August, at Tokyo’s Ueno Park, Benten Pond is completely covered by a thick layer of lotus. The pond is named after Benzaiten, a Buddhist goddess of luck, enshrined in a temple on an island in the pond. Kawase Hansui beautifully captures the magnificence of the largest concentration of lotus in Tokyo.
