Kawase Husai

Kawase Hasui (川瀬 巴水, 1883 – 1957) was a Japanese woodblock printmaker in the early 20th century. He and Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950) are widely regarded as two of the greatest artists of the shin hanga style, and are known especially for their excellent landscape prints. During the forty years of his artistic career, Hasui worked closely with Watanabe Shozaburo(1885-1962), publisher and advocate of the shin hanga movement.
