Japanese Woodblock Bird Prints
By Numata Kashu
In the 1880s, an economic boom in Japan encouraged a renaissance of
traditional colour woodblock painting. During this prosperous period,
a well-educated painter named Numata Kashu created A picture Book of Birds.
Kashu’s three-volume series blended the contemporary interest in woodblock
prints with East Asia’s centuries-old fascination with artist depictions of birds and flowers.
