Original Bairei (1844 - 1895) Japanese Woodblock Print
Bird on a Branch
Series; Bairei's Pictures (Bairei Gakan)
Bairei's Pictures - Terrific image from Kono Bairei's seven volume series called "Bairei's Pictures" (Bairei Gakan), which features subjects taken primarily from nature. These lovely designs include serene landscapes, delicate blossoms, wonderful animals and insects, and even a few scholars and warriors. Beautifully drawn with flowing, calligraphic line work and soft coloring, giving them the look of ink and wash paintings. These handsome scenes capture the world around us in quiet moments of beauty. A great choice to collect or display.
