Art on Tuesday: Evening Snow


Evening Snow at the Edogawa is the title of this ukiyo-e by Kawase Hasui (1882-1957) of 1932. It gives an impression of the early winter as you see the river is not frozen. The two women are wearing thick colorful  kimonos and shawls in blue and orange. I like the umbrellas with snow on their top, but you can see the red and blue inside. It is a peaceful scene,

  1. I really like ukiyo-e with snow in it. This one is lovely. It reminds me of ones done by masters like Hokusai.

    Thanks for sharing this!
