Friday, 29 September 2006 Japanese woodblock print, Hasui. Titled Seto Bishu, dates from 1934 (Showa 9) per the notation in the lefthand margin. The color varies dramatically from the one pictured in the Moku Hanga Shu (the Hasui catalog raisonne); theirs is rendered in shades of grey and beige, where this one is primarily in shades of deep blue. (I just looked in the Hotei catalog as well, and their print is very close in tone to the one in the Moku Hanga Shu; I suspect that this one may be an intentional color variation from the original, because it really is quite different.) There is toning and some light areas to the print, althoughit is not too bad, largely because the image is quite dark to begin with.
