Ohara Sh?son's bird-and-flower works, kacho-e, established him as a master of Japanese nature prints. Kacho-e subjects, along with other prints of the time, were better received by Western collectors than at home. Two seminal exhibitions at the Toledo Museum of Art, in 1930 and 1936, established Sh?son in Western art circles, sparking the artist's most successful period. He worked prolifically, creating naturalistic prints that displayed his delicate lines and skilled shading. Four of Sh?son's prints are featured in this notecard set. Contains 5 each of the following notecards: Plum Blossoms and Bullfinch (Baiha ni Uguisu), published 1931 Camellia and Rice Birds (Tsubaki ni shirobunch?), 1929 Magnolia and Magpie (Mokuren ni Onagadori), published 1931 Vine and Japanese Bunting (Tsuta ni Hojiro), published 1934.
