Kencho Temple, Kamakura
Kawase Hasui (1883-1957)
This print is rarely seen for sale. I doubt whether it was very popular "in the day", and therefore probably didn't have many print editions. The vibrant colors are intact. The Watanabe 6mm seal is in the lower left corner.
shin hanga landscape print
36.1 x 24.0 cm (14.2 x 9.4 inches)
August, 1933. Not necessarily the date that this copy was printed.
clouds, temple, tree
(1.5 / 5.0) - Moderately toned, overall. Various creases, thins, cellophane tape residue verso. I have patched a tear in the lower left side (see "Close up of damage" picture linked below), another small tear in the right margin extending into a cloud, and the worst of the thins. There is a pin-hole in the middle of the image, only noticeable with back lighting.
