Japanese shin hanga woodblock print titled "Snow at Itsukushima" by Kawase Hasui (1883-1957) dated in the lower left margin Showa 7 (December 1932). First edition impression bearing the Watanabe publisher's design "C" cartouche in the lower right margin. The artist's black ink signature and red seal are at the lower left corner of the image. Paper size: 10 1/4"V x 15 1/2"H (image size nearly 9 1/2"V x 14 3/8"H). Very good overall condition with slight fading of the colors.
