Sanka no Haru (Mountain Cottage in Spring)

Shiro Kasamatsu


Peaceful spring view of the Japanese mountain village. Please see beautiful pink shading on the cherry blossoms. Undated. So little is known about this print because there is practically no documentation and it is extremely difficult to find this print outside of a private collection. Seldom ever seen offered for sale. Title "Sanka no Haru" and "Shiro Kasamatsu" cut into the key block and printed on the bottom margin. Red seal "Shiro" at the lower left corner of the image. Beautifully embossed. You can see a person through the window, this human touch that fits very well into the peaceful print. This print is not just beautiful, I feel warmth heart of Shiro. Cherry blossoms are not only infamous places, but Cherry blossoms also bloom gorgeously in mountain village even not well known. This is a perfect handmade Japanese print by the great artist. Hard to find these old Shiro's prints nowadays.
