Kawase Hasui made more than 600 woodblock prints in Oban size, But apart from this well-known main oeuvre there are also roughly more than hundred designs in small formats. With the famous Muller collection these smaller sizes came into the awareness of a wide public.

Smaller sized woodblock prints by Kawase Hasui come roughly in a postcard size or a mini format plus some size variations. They are commonly referred to as postcard sizes.
These designs show all landscape themes. As most of the Hasui prints in regular oban size, also most of the small postcard sizes were published by Watanabe. But one can find Hasui designs in postcard size also by publisher Bijutshusha.
The subjects were often taken from the regular oban size designs. But also new designs were created.
The Hasui small format landscape prints had been well-known before. With the huge collection of shin hanga that came into the market after the death of dealer and collector Robert O. Muller in 2003, also larger numbers of postcard size prints by Hasui were made available for the market. As they had been stored over decades and never been framed, they were usually in excellent condition and well accepted by collectors worldwide.
These smallest woodcut prints by Hasui usually have a price range of $ 150-300.
