Gyokusen's Book of Paintings - Kyoto painter Mochizuki Gyokusen IV was well-known for his kacho-e (birds and flowers) and nature subjects. After studying with his father, he also studied the style of the Maruyama-Shijo School, which combined the direct observation and realism of Western artists with traditional Japanese painting techniques. He co-founded the Kyoto Prefectural School of Painting with fellow artist Kono Bairei to encourage younger artists, and was appointed an Imperial Household Artist in 1904, completing many Imperial commissions while also exhibiting internationally. "Gyokusen's Book of Paintings" (Gyokasen shugajo) was published in 1891 in multiple volumes. These charming designs resemble traditional sumi ink paintings, with handsome calligraphic line work, some monochromatic and others accented with soft color. Gyokusen's works are rarely seen outside Japan.
