The Pond at Benten Shrine in Shiba - Kawase Hasui

Curator's notes:

The Pond at Benten Shrine in Shiba, is a serene and picturesque print created by the renowned Japanese artist Kawase Hasui. The print depicts a tranquil pond located within the grounds of the Benten Shrine in Shiba, a neighborhood in Tokyo. The pond is surrounded by lush greenery, with a bridge spanning across the water, leading to a small island in the center of the pond, adorned with a statue of Benten, the goddess of music, poetry and education. The water is calm and still, reflecting the surrounding trees and the shrine's architecture in its surface. The print exudes a sense of tranquility and peacefulness, with the use of soft colors and delicate brushstrokes, making it a true masterpiece of the shin-hanga movement.


    Choose from a range of sizes, with the smallest size being comparable to an A4 sheet, and the largest size being comparable to an A2. Each size is meticulously scaled to match the original Japanese woodblock print.
