Cockatoo on Pomegranate
by Koson Ohara 1877-1945

Koson Ohara, 1877-1945      Master of Kacho-e

Ohara Koson is famous for his prints with animal subjects. He is considered as the uncontested master of kacho-e - images of birds and flowers - in shin hanga style. 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.
