Japanese shin hanga woodblock print titled "Kiyomizu Temple, Kyoto" from the series "Collection of Scenic Views of Japan II, Kansai Edition" by Kawase Hasui (1883-1957) dated in the lower margin November Showa 8 (1933). The artist's black ink signature and red seal are at the lower right corner of the image. Vintage post-war lifetime edition with no publisher's seal. It is not a recent Heisei edition. Paper size: 15 1/2" x 10 3/8" (image size: 14 1/8" x 9 1/2"). Very good overall condition. There is a tiny white spot in the foreground that appears to be a printing anomaly. Two pinholes are in the left margin. There is tape residue at the top back margin edge. A color illustration of this image can be found on page 452, plate 324 of Volume 2 of "Kawase Hasui: The Complete Woodblock Prints" by Kendall H. Brown, Hotei Publishing, 2003.
