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 6 1/2 inches by 9 1/4 inches, all except the last two being doubles for a combined size of 13 by 18 1/2 inches and is on softly aged double washi paper, as pulled from the folder. On some, there is slight marginal toning, as shown. They are unusual prints, with a delightful selection of sea life, animals and birds. We accept credit cards & PayPal.
