"One hundred woodblock prints of the 20th-century Japanese artist Hasui are cataloged in bright colors on large pages roughly 9" x 11." Captions for the hundred are grouped following the prints. With annotations which are comments by Hasui on the particular print or informative remarks by Narazaki Munishige, editor of a book on the artist's prints, the captions are instructive. Instructive too are two introductory essays by Kendall H. Brown. The first is on the Japanese cultural sources of Hasui's prints; the second focuses on Hasui's life and art. The succinct text with the appealing pictures of numerous prints offers an ideal introduction to and sampling of the woodblock prints by this outstanding Japanese artist who is regarded as one of the primary artists of the 20th-century Japanese art movement known as "New prints" (Shin-hanga)."--Midwest Book Review

Reseña del editor:

Kawase Hasui (1883-1957) is considered the foremost Japanese landscape print artist of the 20th century. Visions of Japan: Kawase Hasui's Masterpieces brings together in a single volume one hundred of Hasui's most celebrated prints. Fully illustrated, this publication includes annotated descriptions for each work, as well as two essays on Hasui's life and work. Hasui's valuable contribution to the woodblock print medium was acknowledged in 1956, a year before his death, when he was honoured with the distinction of `Living National Treasure'.
