Outstanding woodblock artist Kawase Hasui


Kawase Hasui (1883-1957) is an ukiyo-e artist, woodblock printmaker in Taisho and Showa Period in Japan. His real name is Kawase Bunjiro.


He was one of the artists who established Shin-hanga (new ukiyo-e woodblock prints) including Yoshida Hiroshi, Ito Shinsui, Takahashi Shotei, and Tsuchiya Koitsu. They worked artistic activity to revive the declined Japanese ukiyo-e. 

He expresses Japanese beautiful landscapes richly and people call him as “Travelling mood poet” “Travelling Printmaker” “Utagawa Hiroshige of Showa”.

Hasui gets a high evaluation abroad rather than in the country. Of course, Katsushika Hokusai or Utagawa Hiroshige is famous in Japan but the many Japanese people don’t know the name of Kawase Hasui.
