Notes (1st edition)?One of Hasui's most famous and favorite prints from his Fuji Series - this one entitled "Evening at Tago-No-Ura". It is a lovely early evening scene of a farmer slowly wending his way to his barn with a full wagon load of hay on a horse drawn cart. The farmer is seen silhouetted between a stand of tall pine trees - with the always magnificent Mount Fuji in the distance lighted by the late afternoon sun. This print, made originally in 1940, was published by Watanabe - who is best known for publishing the majority of Hasui's prints.
