Original Hasui (1883 - 1957) Japanese Woodblock Print
Evening Snow at Edo River, 1932
Comments - Lovely winter scene of two women in traditional kimono crossing a snow-covered bridge over the Edo River. Snow gently falls through the gray evening sky, coating the willow tree that frames the view. Beautiful handling of the shading on the tree, which creates a real sense of snow piled up along the branches and trunk. A fantastic Hasui snow image.
