Last week, we profiled Winter Art Around the World. This week, we take a closer look at one of our favorite artists of the snowbound world at the Manhattan Art & Antiques Center: Hasui. Japanese artist Hasui Kawase (1883-1957) was one of the great masters of shin-hanga, an early 20th century art movement that revitalized Edo and Meiji period styles of woodblock printing. As more snow heads towards those of us in New York City this weekend, it seems a good time to take a moment to appreciate the hushed wonder of a first snow as so beautifully realized in Hasui’s winter scenes. You can see more Hasui prints here and reach out to the Japanese woodblock print gallery: The Akaska Collection.
