Bairei's Album of Flowers and Birds - This lovely print comes from Bairei's series "Album of Flowers and Birds," first published in 1883. Considered by many his best work, this beautiful series features birds paired with flowers for each of the four seasons.

Handsome choices for display, these attractive woodblocksare a fine choice for a bird or flower enthusiast.

He helped found the Kyoto Prefectural School of Painting and later opened his own studio, earning recognition as a devoted teacher. Bairei applied his naturalistic style of painting to woodblock prints during the Meiji era, producing the incredible bird and flower subjects for which he is famed.
