In essence, Hasui was a “poet of place”. He would go on to produce over 600 prints, almost all landscapes, and in a wholly unified, instantly recognizable style.
He has often been likened to a new Hiroshige, as both artists loved to depict charming scenes as souvenirs of their extensive travels.
Hasui created dreamlike images of Japan - capturing the timeless beauty of the country. He traveled endlessly in search of inspiration - both on his walks in his native Tokyo and on his many lengthy excursions around the islands and prefectures.
In this collection, we pay homage to Hasui's spirit, ethos and ardent pursuit of beauty, with 16 highlights from his life's work.
