A museum-quality fine art giclée print of this stunning, atmospheric work by Japanese artist Sochu Kawase Hasui.
“Evening Snow at Terashima Village” (Yuki ni kure no Terashima mura). From the series “Twelve Scenes of Tokyo” (Tôkyô jûnidai). 1920.
This stunning Duille fine art print features ‘Evening Snow at Terashima Village’ a woodblock by Japanese artist Sochu Kawase Hasui.
Thought by some scholars to be one of the artist’s best works. Hasui wrote, ‘I love quiet scenes with the shadow of loneliness hanging over them’. Hasui often created works picturing scenes at night, dawn or sunset. He sought to embody the inspiration of nature, atmospheric effects to suggest ephemerality, poetic moods of ‘tranquillity or contemplation’, the source of a Japanese sense of identity in values and sensibilities of the past and the capacity of ‘beauty’ for ‘expressing spirituality.
About the work
The artist himself described the work, “A long, gentle slope, two or three dim lights, even the row of houses is interesting. There is a ditch on the opposite side of the road. People seldom walk on the road because of the heavy snow, which here gradually darkens into a light purple. This is the village of Terajima in Mukôjima. There are a few telephone poles and lights are just beginning to appear in the houses in the distance.”
