1000: Morning at Mitohama (Hasui)

This is a classic view of Mount Fuji, from the Izu Peninsula to the south, and the boats on the shore make for a simple but effective composition.

Watase Hasui (1883-1957) was one of the major artists involved in the revival of woodblock printing in the early twentieth century. He brings a fresh subtlety of expression to this traditional craft.

Apart from a brief period in Shiobara, northern Tochigi, he appears to have lived his whole life in Tokyo, but specialised in landcapes, drawn from his travels across Japan.
