This exceptional collection features pre-earthquake and pre-war prints by renowned Japanese painter and printmaker Kawase Hasui (1883-1957). Irwin J. Pachter first exhibited the collection at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, NY, in 1986 – and it hasn’t appeared publicly since. The over one hundred prints in the auction attest to Pachter’s keen eye, his understanding of the shin hanga print and its technical innovations, and his discipline in selecting  prints in the best condition.
