A night view over the snow covered rooftops of a village along the sea at Echigo in Northern Japan.

ARTIST:  Shiro Kasamatsu (1898 – 1991)

Shiro Kasamatsu is regarded as one of the top shin-hanga woodblock print artists in Japan.  Born in Tokyo, Shiro studied art under Kaburagi Kiyokata at a young age.  He created his first woodblock prints for the publisher Watanabe Shozaburo in 1919 and continued to design shin-hanga prints for many years.  Shiro became famous for his landscapes and scenes of traditional Japanese life and created over hundred woodblock designs for the publisher Unsodo.  In the late 1950s he started creating, carving and printing sosaku hanga or creative prints.
