Hasui Kawase (1883 - 1957) is a Japanese painter and illustrator from the Shin-Hanga movement (20th century). The latter aims to counter the arrival of photography in the 20th century, by renewing the image of the print by combining tradition and symbolic themes, addressed in particular by Hokusai and Hiroshige, while bringing light with a more modern technique. Through his travels and the seasons, Hasui draws temples and landscapes by strongly contrasting the shadows and lights. He incorporates a character in each print, giving an intimate, poetic and even melancholy dimension. His works represent the modern vision of Japanese culture.

 

The Silver Pavilion, also called Ginkaku-ji, is a Buddhist temple in Kyoto located in the Higashiyama district. It is a very aesthetic place, made of lacquered wood and surrounded by a beautiful, uncluttered garden with bamboo and a Japanese moss garden. The place reveals a magnificent view of the north of the city of Kyoto.
