The prints made by Koson have been very popular since the 1920s and 1930s. Most prints were published by Watanabe Shozaburo and exported. Ohara Koson worked both as a painter and a print maker. His origins as a painter are reflected in his prints. Indeed, some give the impression of watercolor paintings.
