Ohara Shōson, Nanten Bush and Fly Catchers in Snow (Setchu nanten ni ruricho), 1929. The early modern prints of Ohara Shōson, one of the finest artists of the shin hanga, or “new prints,” movement, were significant to reviving Japan’s woodblock print industry after the devastating Kantō earthquake of 1923. Shōson painted landscapes and other subjects, but it was his bird-and-flower works, kacho-e, published by Watanabe Shōzaburō, that established him as a master of Japanese nature prints. Printed on recycled paper. Inside Message: Season's Greetings. Contains 12 cards and envelops. Measures 5 x 7 in.
