Description: This print is from the series, "The Nippon Mokuhan Gasui" (Masterpieces of old Japanese colour prints), a collection of reproductions of various themes and designs published around 1924.

Je-Shui was a painter of the late Yuan dynasty in China, he specialized in flower-and-bird paintings, and his style was characterized by the koroku-tensai, painting method, in which lines outline a form and fill in the outlines with color.

The crape myrtle flowers are gently rendered, the birds perched on the branches are lively depicted, and are beautifully captured in a single, horizontal printing.


It comes with a description sheet in English and Japanese.
There are a few small spots on this print. Also, there is a very slight crease on the lower left side.
