Kawase Hasui (1883-1957)
This is an "iconic" shin hanga
image, chosen as the cover picture for the Hotei Hasui Catalog Raisonne. I've always enjoyed the way the shin hanga
artists depicted moonlight on the landscape. The lighting on the crop rows is, to me, a splendid touch. 6mm Watanabe seal in lower right corner.
This print was originally for sale for $1025.00, but was sold as a "Deal of the Day" for $600.00.

(4.5 / 5.0) - Excellent. A couple of minor creases resulting from the printing process. Other than that, perfect.
