Hasui Kawase is widely regarded as one of the most important Japanese landscape artists of the 20th century, and his prints are easily identifiable by the calmness of their atmosphere and the perfection of their composition.

Hasui Kawase focused almost entirely on producing prints of landscapes and townscapes, which were derived from sketches that he drew both in Tokyo and while travelling throughout Japan. The work that was created before this occurrence is now incredibly difficult to find and is in high demand. Hasui continued to design prints until the year 1957, when he passed away, cultivating popularity not just in Japan but even outside of the country.

Kawase Hasui moon regarded himself as a realist and drew upon his education in Western art to inform his compositions. He made travel and landscape prints as Hiroshige did, but his subjects were less well-known locations rendered with naturalistic light, shade, and texture. These landscape prints are based on rapid sketches, hasui kawase paintings and watercolours that were collected from the natural world and used as a reference. 

Hasui Kawase commons prints lacked the captions and titles that were common in prints of Hiroshige’s age. His subjects were also rendered with naturalistic light, shade, and texture. From the time of his very first print in 1918, Hasui’s art has achieved a tremendous amount of success in terms of popularity.

The year 1952 marked the year that the Japanese government bestowed the title of Living National Treasure upon Kawase Hasui. Unfortunately, the 1923 earthquake destroyed all of his woodblock prints, kawase hasui poster, kawase hasui original prints and more than 200 sketches. Hasui Kawase’s most popular book is Kawase Hasui Collection Supplemental Revision Ukiyo-e Landscape Art Book [JAPANESE EDITION].
