Ohara Shōson’s bird-and-flower works, kacho-e, established him as a master of Japanese nature prints. Kacho-e subjects, along with other prints of the time, were better received by Western collectors than at home. Two seminal exhibitions at the Toledo Museum of Art, in 1930 and 1936, established Shōson in Western art circles, sparking the artist's most successful period. He worked prolifically, creating naturalistic prints that displayed his delicate lines and skilled shading. Four of Shōson's prints are featured in this notecard set. 

Contains five each of the following images:

Plum Blossoms and Bullfinch (Baiha ni Uguisu), published 1931

Camellia and Rice Birds (Tsubaki ni shirobunchō), 1929

Magnolia and Magpie (Mokuren ni Onagadori), 1931

Japanese Bunting (Tsuta ni Hojiro), 1934
