Gallinule next to flowering plants


Item code : DUB061

Artist Koson Ohara
Subject Animal & Birds
Format Tanzaku
Size 19 x 34.5cm
Date Circa Early 20th C.


This print shows a gallinule stalking an insect through foggy marshes and a growth of what seem to be Dianthus flowers. The bird's black body comes to life when viewed from different angles, as its embossed feathers are illuminated. Its bright orange beak and legs, as well as the subtle pink of the flowers to its left, lend this tense scene of a predator about to strike an elegant air. The background is composed of grey gradations, illustrating murky waters and it also beautifully shows the grain of the wood that was used to produce this print.
