"Shinagawa"(Rainy Season at Ryoshimachi, Shinagawa) is by Kawase Hasui (1883-1957). "Ryoshimachi" means "The town where the fisherman lives in". Right margin contains title "Shinagawa"(this is town name) and "Showa 6 nen 3 gatsu saku"(printed March 1931) in Japanese.
Regarded as a major Japanese landscape artist of the 20th century, Hasui’s prints are characterized by their serenity of mood and flawless composition. While his landscapes are markedly modern, these shin hanga prints yearn for a Japan past. The finest prints and drawings of this period have a unique and immediate appeal that rests upon traditional virtues of delicacy, poise and restraint.
