Ohara Koson

1 May - 30 June

Ohara Koson was the most famous shin hanga designer of bird and flower prints (kacho-e).  He created prints under three different artist names ()- Ohara Hōson 小原豊邨, Ohara Shōson 小原祥邨 and Ohara Koson.  Koson is acknowledged as a master of twentieth-century printed kachoga, and with some 500 prints to his name, he was one of the most, if not the most, prolific kachoga artists.

Koson’s exquisite prints offer a moment of quiet contemplation. The harmony of their composition and their peaceful subject matter are perfect additions to the visual landscape of Perth City in the winter.
