Kono Bairei Hyakucho Gafu

We are pleased to offer original first edition woodblock prints from this delightful work One Hundred Birds in 3 volumes entitled Sky, Earth & Man. Bairei Kono 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 print measures approximately 9 3/4 inches by 6 1/2 inches and is on softly aged washi paper, as pulled from the folder. The images on page 3 & 4 are on two sheets, measuring 19 1/2 inches by 13 inches combined and are sold as double prints. Bairei's red seal or hanko is on each print and the birds are named in Japanese characters. The prints are in excellent condition, with strong impressions.
