Ohara Koson

Ohara Koson - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Ohara Koson (1877-1945) is a Japanese painter and print designer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is considered by many to be the foremost 20th century designer of bird and flower prints, or kacho-e. His designs were produced in prolific numbers for a primarily Western market and range from haunting realism to humorous depictions of animals at play.

Ohara Koson's work was exhibited abroad, and his prints sold well, particularly in the United States. He was active designing prints until at least 1935, and died at his home in Tokyo in 1945.   

Koson's prints are close to watercolors and made with great care, with attention to detail, especially on plumages. His prints of herons or eagles are particularly successful.
