Known as Japan´s premier ´´poet of place,´´ Kawase Hasui is one of the most popular landscape artists of the twentieth century. This richly illustrated catalogue spans Kawase Hasui´s most imaginative period-the years from 1918 to the Great Earthquake of 1923. An important contributor to the early shin-hanga (new print) movement, Hasui crafted distinctive landscapes that also recall artistic traditions ranging from ukiyo-e and French Japonisme to Post-Impressionist painting. Water and Shadow is based on the unparalleled collection donated to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts by René and Carolyn Balcer. These selections exemplify the creativity of Hasui´s early work and reveal the dynamic interplay between his prints,graphic design, and rare but spectacular paintings. Five essays by leading scholars in North America and Japan explore Hasui´s methods, art historical relationships, and themes as well as some socioeconomic aspects of the print business. With 385 color illustrations.

It was a chance to start over, a fresh start outside the paranormal night human world she grew up in. She was ready to be a normal human; one who didn´t have to worry about drinking blood or all the fighting that went on in that world. Perfectionist Sam did everything well. He protected his family and friends as he swore he would. He had jobs to help everyone survive while they hid in plain sight. He even taught swimming lessons. His life was perfect, at least until Whitney showed up in his town. Without thinking of the consequences, Sam makes a choice to follow his heart for a change. That choice changes everything, maybe for better or for worse. After one year of getting used to her new reality, Whitney discovers that maybe she was never meant to leave the night human world after all. Deciding to take swimming lessons, she is paired with the high school hottie, Prince Sam as her friends call him. That one decision changes her life, and she´s quickly thrown right back into the night human world she thought she was getting away from. The only question is: can she survive going back? 1.
