Western Flowers Series - Lovely design from Chigusa Soun's " Western Flowers Series" series, published by Maria Gabu of Kyoto. Rarely seen on the market, these painterly images reflect Soun's mastery of flowers and plants. Interestingly, there were not enough designs by Chigusa Soun to complete the series, so the publisher commissioned additional designs in Soun's style from Tsuchiya Rakuzan. The series was begun in the late 1920s, but images were printed up until 1940. We've seen these subjects offered elsewhere online for more than $300! A nice choice for display.
