The artist - 

Ohara Shōson (1877–1945) was a master of Japan’s shin hanga (new print) movement, which breathed new life into traditional ukiyo-e printmaking. The term ukiyo is a reference to Buddhist belief about the transient nature of life, the “floating world” of living in the moment. With their depth and delicacy, Shōson’s elegant kacho-e (bird-and-flower prints) capture an owl at the instant of landing on a moonlit branch, the swirl of water around a paddling wood duck’s feet, the alert stillness of a standing egret—the fleeting beauty of nature.
