For the sake of an aesthetically fruitful collaboration between eye and mind:
Shoson Ohara (1877-1945) was a Japanese painter and printmaker who specialized in depicting birds and flowers.
Shoson began his career working in the nature print genre, though he was also adept with human subjects.
Shoson’s prints became immensely popular in the West, mostly in consequence of the 1930 and 1936 Toledo Museum exhibitions. In fact, more prints were sold by Shoson during these shows than by any other artist, at least partly because of their beautifully decorative character.
The prints and paintings of Shoson Ohara can be found in museums and private collections around the world.
