Art of Kawase Hasui

LACMA Collections Online - Kawase Hasui [Bio]
This is wonderful collection of Shin Hanga style woodblock prints by one of the greatest Japanese printmakers of all time - Kawase Hasui.  In 1956, Hasui was named a Living National Treasure in Japan. His landscape works have a very natural, yet dreamlike quality.  His Winter prints really seem to capture the motion, presence and quiet nature of the snow.  Here a few of my favorites.  By the way, I visited the Kasuga Shrine in Nara, and the trail to the shrine is covered with many beautiful stone lanterns and a few stone lions too.  It was quite an enchanting site.
