Kendall W. Brown con Water and Shadow: Kawase Hasui and Japanese Landscape Prints

Known as Japan's premier "poet of place," Kawase Hasui is one of the most popular landscape artists of the twentieth century. This richly illustrated catalogue spans Kawase Hasui's most imaginative period-the years from 1918 to the Great Earthquake of 1923. An important contributor to the early shin-hanga (new print) movement, Hasui crafted distinctive landscapes that also recall artistic traditions ranging from ukiyo-e and French Japonisme to Post-Impressionist painting.

From the Inside Flap
Known as Japan's premier "poet of place," Kawase Hasui is one of the most popular landscape artists of the twentieth century. This richly illustrated catalogue spans Kawase Hasui's most imaginative period-the years from 1918 to the Great Earthquake of 1923. An important contributor to the early shin-hanga (new print) movement, Hasui crafted distinctive landscapes that also recall artistic traditions ranging from ukiyo-e and French Japonisme to Post-Impressionist painting. Water and Shadow is based on the unparalleled
collection donated to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts by René and Carolyn Balcer. These selections exemplify the creativity of Hasui's early work and
reveal the dynamic interplay between his prints,graphic design, and rare but spectacular paintings.
Five essays by leading scholars in North America and Japan explore Hasui's methods, art historical relationships, and themes as well as some socioeconomic
aspects of the print business. With 385 color illustrations.
