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

Sen Shunkyo, or Ts'ien Shun-chu mainly studied portraits, flowers and birds and was known for his characteristic painting style. This print of four rats eating a melon was meant to represent something quite simple and refreshing. The rather gloomy and almost sinister design, makes this a very unique print.
