Kono Bairei Kacho Gafu Woodblock Prints 1899

We have been very fortunate to come across these stunning woodblock prints from the first edition of Barei’s Album of Flowers and Birds published in 1883. Bairei was a highly renowned artist in the bird and flower painting school (kacho-ga) in the imperial city and old capital of Japan, Kyoto. For Bairei, it was a long journey, as he started his painting studies at the age of 8 in the Maruyama School of naturalist painting. At 27, he transferred to the Nanga School, which embraces the painting of natural history and botanical subjects in an expressive and less restrained manner. He was instrumental in establishing the Kyoto School of Painting, finally retiring to open his own studio to other painters.

Each woodblock in the series was printed from six or seven blocks, to produce an image of vibrant colour and beauty. The red chop of Bairei is on each one and each has an ornate border lacking in later editions. Each print measure is in excellent condition, measuring approximately 9 ½ by 14 ½ inches on soft white paper, as pulled from the folder. They are authentic antique prints recently purchased in Japan and are from the exceedingly scarce first edition of 1883.
