Hasui Kawase at the Clark

Hasui Kawase designed many ukiyo-e prints in a style influenced by Western art. He portrayed landscapes and cityscapes, with an emphasis on pattern and mood.

He created over 600 prints during a four-decade career. The Japanese government called him a Living National Treasure for his contribution to the culture of Japan.
This print is included in the current exhibition at the Clark Art Institute in Massachusetts: "Competing Currents: 20th Century Japanese Prints" which is on show through this Sunday, January 30, 2022.
