Evening at Tagonoura


Item code : DUS193

Artist Hasui Kawase
Subject Landscapes
Publisher Watanabe
Format Oban (Vertical)
Size 26.5 x 38.8 cm


Printed 1946-1957.

This print depicts Tagonoura in Shizuoka prefecture. Mount Fuji can be seen in the background, dyed pink by the setting sun, while a farmer with a horse cart traverse a path in front of the mountain. Pine trees in the foreground frame the scene beautifully.

Hasui masterfully renders multiple gradations of pinks and blues to represent light and shadow, lending the image the soft glow characteristic of evening light. The print has hardly any line work, looking very much like a watercolour painting.
