Original Hasui (1883 - 1957) Japanese Woodblock Print
Futatsu Hall at Nikko (Nikko Futatsudo), 1929
Comments - Quiet scene of a lone visitor making his way across the grounds of the shrine at Nikko as a light rain falls. Rows of trees fill the background with richly shaded foliage, creating a striking three-dimensional effect beneath the cloudy gray sky. The intricately detailed red shrine buildings are reflected in soft tones on the watery pavement. A beautiful, peaceful image, rendered with muted tones and fine bokashi shading..
