- Kacho-zu Fusuma-e (Birds and Flowers) -

Eitoku Kano


The wonderful woodblock print "Kacho-zu Fusuma-e” (Birds and Flowers) is by Eitoku Kano (1543-1590), a renowned Japanese Nihon-ga painter of the Kano school. This print is part of the 46 sliding door paintings in the main hall of Juko-in Temple in Kyoto. The original paintings have been designated as National Treasures. This superb image depicts a serene winter view with birds and flowers. The mountains can be faintly seen beyond the morning mist, and I feel like I can hear the voices of geese in the cold early winter air.

Originally painted in ca. 1566, this print was published by Tansei-sha in 1983. The publisher's seal, the printer's name "Kurazo Yoneda," and the carver's name "Sadao Uetani" are located in the right margin. It comes with an original explanatory paper (Japanese only, no English).
