Wonderfully detailed print of snowy herons huddled together in the water by Japanese artist Ohara Koson (1877-1945). This is a shin-hanga style of print, a revitalization of the traditional ukiyo-e style, which means "pictures of the floating world", popularized during the Edo period in Japan (17th-19th century). The background of the print fades beautifully from the icy grey and white toned sky into the gorgeous blues of the water. The herons are amazingly detailed with their feathers actually imprinted into the woodblock. This print is very multi-dimensional and wonderful. Size: 15.25" tall, 10.25" wide
