The Four Seasons (Shiki) - In 2003, a private collector commissioned Paul Binnie to produce a stunning series of four bijin-ga on the theme of the Four Seasons. These luxurious designs achieve an exceptional level of artistic and technical expertise, employing deluxe treatments such as mica, bokashi shading, and baren sujizuri (swirling baren marks). The first subject, Summer, was issued in a limited edition of 50, and due to its success, the commission was expanded to an edition of 100 for the three remaining seasons.
