Details: More information...
Hasui's works evoke the power of tradition. One of Hasui's best-known works, Shiba Zöjö-ji Temple, Tokyo shows the recycled motifs from Hiroshige's two master pieces, Night Snow at Kambara and Kinryüzan Temple at Asakusa. The snow covered red buildings refer to Kinryüzan, and the figure with umbrella is taken from Kambara both by Hiroshige. (from Nostalgic Japan exhibition 3/28/05-)
