Description: This print was done by Fukui Gessai, a print artist who did reproductions of historical paintings. This particular print belongs to a picture album of 12 issued by Aoki Suzando in the 1890s after Ogata Korin’s original designs who is credited with reviving and consolidating the Rinpa school of Japanese painting.

Very charming design where a blue kingfisher is perched on the stem of a lotus leaf. The title itself tells the story of this scene where this lotus leaf has been torn apart by the autumn breeze while the small bird is looking at the whirlpool beneath where a flower has probably fallen inside. The harmony between the green and the blue colors is remarkable as well as the use of the silver ink on the whirlpool which surely stands out!


This print is worn, toned, and has slight creases but remains nice colors for its age.
