Road to Nikko (Nikko Kaido Line)
by Hasui, Kawase (1883-1957) - 川瀬巴水

Artist:Hasui, Kawase (1883-1957) - 川瀬巴水
Title:Road to Nikko (Nikko Kaido Line)
Date:1930 (this artwork: Early post-war strike)
Publisher:Watanabe - 渡辺
Medium:Woodblock - 木版画
Format:Oban - 大判, approx. 10.5 x 15 inches
Condition:Very good impression and good condition. No tears, stains, or foxing. Slight natural age toning. There are some light soft creases around the centre of the print that are fortunately nearly completely invisible against the dark background of the print.
Price: Sold
Artwork Code:8705-Kawase_Hasui
Notes:Road to Nikko (also known as "Nikko Kaido Line"). This is a gorgeous print with rich, deep colour - much better than the recent restrikes. There is no Watanabe publisher seal -- a frequent feature of older editions (see the informative article "Missing Watanabe Seals" at Ukiyo-e Gallery). Based on the paper type, slight age toning, and printing quality, I believe this print to be a lifetime strike.
