Description

Bairei was a Kyoto artist of the late nineteenth century whose colorful depictions of nature helped to revive interest in the genre of bird-and-flower painting. His paintings and prints are an attractive blend of naturalism, a poetic sensibility, and flair for interesting compositions. By infusing the classical styles of the late Edo period with a fresh sensibility, Bairei prepared the way for a transition to a more modern age. This book was issued six years after the artist’s death, when Bairei’s work was still in high demand.
