Four Seasons of Flowers - Lovely design from Tomioka Tessai's series "Four Seasons of Flowers," published by Unsodo in Meiji 40 (1907). Tomioka based his designs on paintings by Sakai Hoitsu (1761 - 1828), who is credited with reviving the historic Rinpa School of painting during the Edo era. The series comprises ten volumes of colorful flowers and blossoming trees and shrubs for the four seasons. These handsome woodblocks feature interesting compositions, ranging from bold closeups to airy depictions of delicate leaves and blossoms, carefully colored and detailed. This is the first time we've offered these beautiful nature prints. An attractive series to collect or display. These woodblocks are from the summer group.
