Kono Bairei - Born in
Bairei's Album of One Hundred Birds - Kono Bairei's wonderful series "Bairei's Album of One Hundred Birds," was first published in three small format volumes in 1881, with a supplement featuring new designs following in 1884, also in three volumes. These lovely designs feature birds in their natural habitats, among trees, flowers, and plants, in a variety of seasons. The prints are primarily in black and gray with a few accents of soft, warm colors. The prints in this group come from a larger, oban size edition that is rarely seen. Carefully observed and drawn with fine calligraphic line work, these prints are an excellent example of Bairei's kacho-e.
