Ohara Koson was a Japanese painter and print designer who was active during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and is considered part of the shin-hanga (“new prints”) movement that revitalised traditional ukiyo-e printmaking. The majority of his production comprised prints of birds and flowers, many of which are reproduced in vibrant detail in this publication. A range of other animals also occasionally appear in Koson’s rich body of work, such as monkeys, wild boar, deer, frogs, crabs, and butterflies. In addition, he sometimes made tranquil scenes of fishing boats, temples, and landscapes. Discover this Japanese master through this remarkable collection of prints.
