Kawase Hasui (1883-1957) is considered one of the most important Japanse landscape artists of the 20th century. His prints, produced under the guidance and stern eye of his publisher, Watanabe Shozaburo, are the modern continuation of the unforgettable work by Hiroshige and Hokusai, the 19th-century masters of this genre. As none other, he could evoke Japan of the eventful interwar period.

With the exception of a single print, his main oeuvre is shown in its entirety in full colour in this new publication. Also included are the prints Hasui produced for other publishers, including pieces never before reproduced, as well as monochrome illustrations of miscellaneous prints, such as postcards, doll prints and others. Fifty-seven prints are shown in alternative states.

Hasui's work enjoyed huge popularity from his very first print of 1918. In contrast to his illustrious 19th century predecessors, his work was immediately succesful in the rest of the world. His publisher, Watanabe Shozaburo, recognised the enormous potential of the American market, which resultated in Hasui's prints fetching high prices at auctions in New York as early as the 1920s.

After the Second World War, his prints were highly desired and sought after collectible items among the American occupying forces in Japan. Hasui's work has always been greatly appreciated in Japan. He was achknowledged as a 'Living National Treasure'.
