Woodblock print, nishiki-e
Horizontal naga ōban, 187 x 474 mm
Signed: Hasui with Hasui seal
Publisher: Watanabe Shōzaburō (unsealed)
Fine impression, colour and condition.
A very rare print, because the woodblocks were destroyed in the earthquake of 1923. Hasui shows here his mastery in the depiction of atmospheric effects: the pines in the background are veiled by the misty rain of summer.
