Like a kigo (a season word) in traditional haiku, Japanese shin hanga (new prints) often suggest the transience of nature. Kawase Hasui, one of the most prominent artists of this printmaking movement, evoked fleeting moments of seasonal beauty in his imagery—spring heralded by cherry blossoms and azaleas, autumn announced by a blaze of maple leaves. In concert with the opening of Japan's cultural and political borders, Hasui was also influenced by Western realistic art, particularly photography. An increased emphasis on shading and linear perspective is noticeable in his atmospheric depictions of Japan's architecture and landscape. The shin hanga movement began around 1915, and within a few years, Hasui began collaborating with publisher Watanabe Shozaburo, a relationship that would continue for the rest of Hasui's life. Throughout his career, Hasui created more than six hundred woodblock prints. The twelve shown here, created from 1920 to 1949, are in the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

In an era of rapid industrial and urban development in Japan, Kawase Hasui (Japanese, 1883–1957) was famous for prints of serene landscapes and waterways. His impressionist-influenced images emphasized the beauty of Japan’s rural countryside, the illumination of land and water by sun and moon, and the changing seasons—his rain, snow, and night scenes were highly acclaimed. Often on the road in search of inspiration, Hasui brought his watercolor sketches to the printing studio of publisher Watanabe Shozaburo, where they were transformed into woodblock prints by a skillful team. One of the greatest and most prolific artists of the shin hanga movement, Hasui produced over six hundred woodblock prints during his forty-year career. In 1956, he was awarded the prestigious title of Living National Treasure by the Japanese government.
