This is an genuine original Japanese woodblock print by great shin-hanga artist Kawase Hasui (1883-1957) titled "Fishing Village, Arai, Enshu ". The print is dated Showa 6(1931). Some prints by Hasui offered now on ebay are later editions of much less quality (sometimes from recarved blocks) This one is the prewar edition published by Watanabe in 1931, and bears appropriate Watanabe “B” seal on the left lower margin. One from the best Hasui’s night landscapes. Great impression, excellent colors and registrations. Signed by artist Hasui, has seal “Sui” in the image and titled in kanji at the right margin. Wonderful “bokashi” shading, life-like moon reflection, no any toning, clean backside. Excellent condition. Oban size 15 1/4" x 10 1/4".
