Original Ohara Koson (Shoson) (1877 - 1945) Japanese Woodblock Print
Flycatchers in Snow, 1929
Comments - Beautiful winter scene of two flycatchers perched on a nandina bush covered with red berries. The bright blue of the bird's feathers creates a lovely contrast with the white of the snow, the green foliage, and the soft blue gray of the sky. An attractive design with fine bokashi shading.
