“Blossom Rain at Kanbayashi Hot Springs”


A museum-quality fine art giclée print of this stunning, atmospheric work by Japanese artist Shiro Kasamatsu.

“Blossom Rain at Kanbayashi Hot Springs”, Shiro Kasamatsu. 1939.

This breathtaking Duille fine art print features Blossom Rain at Kanbayashi Hot Springs – [ ‘Hanafubuki, Kanbayashi Onsen’ ] – a woodblock by Japanese artist Shiro Kasamatsu.

Kasamatsu began creating woodblock prints around 1919 and during his long life made around only 150 such works with 50 or so of the early woodblocks being lost to fire following the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923. Most popular in the west were his landscapes of which Blossom Rain is a particularly beautiful example.

About the work
A cascade of blossom ‘rain’ falls within a grove of cherry trees around the famous hot springs at Kanbayashi in the centre of Japan’s Honshu island. Soft lights glow from within and several bathers are seen in shadow. The atmospheric scene welcomes us and creates intrigue.

This is a museum-quality archival print made using materials which will last for many years.
