Hasui Kawase (1883 - 1957) is a Japanese painter and illustrator from the Shin-Hanga movement (20th century). The latter aims to counter the arrival of photography in the 20th century, by renewing the image of the print by combining tradition and symbolic themes, addressed in particular by Hokusai and Hiroshige, while bringing light with a more modern technique. Through his travels and the seasons, Hasui draws temples and landscapes by strongly contrasting the shadows and lights. He incorporates a character in each print, giving an intimate, poetic and even melancholy dimension. His works represent the modern vision of Japanese culture.


Tsuchiura is a city located in the center of Ibaraki Prefecture and is known for its Lake Kasumigaura, the second largest in Japan. Despite the modernity of recent years, the city retains a part of greenery, especially around the lake.
