Description
Artist: Koson Ohara (1877-1945)
Title: Eight White-Fronted Geese in Flight
Publisher: Daikokuya
Date: Early 20th century
Size: 18.9 x 36.4 cm
Condition: Faint discolouration and minor adhesive residue around edges from previous mounting. Minor brown spots around margins. Light stain by lower margin.

Ohara Koson was a prolific printmaker of the twentieth century widely known for his kacho-ga, bird and flower prints. During his study with Kason, he took his artist name Koson, a partial adaptation of his teacher's name. Early in his career, many of Koson’s prints were muted in colour and captured a sense of calmness and elegance. Koson’s depiction of birds are very realistic, the details of body and feathers in particular were always depicted with meticulous care. In this print, Koson makes reference to a Japanese classical art motif of geese flying in the moonlight, a theme he came back to several times throughout his career. Geese are often shown in pairs as a symbol of loyalty and marital happiness.; Artist: Koson Ohara (1877-1945)
