Kawase Hasui (川瀬 巴水1883 – 1957) was a Japanese artist. One of the most prominent print designers of the shin-hanga movement, Kawase Hasui is possibly the most renowned Japanese landscape artist of the 20th century.
Kawase Hasui, a modern printmaker gave primacy to the mood of a place. Especially their persistent interest in depicting light characterizes the dreamlike atmosphere in their prints. Artists such as Kawase Hasui expressed a romantic yearning for nature, rural roots and the warm wooden architecture that was disappearing in urban Tokyo
