Ohara Koson, Original Japanese Woodblock Print, Camelia, Bird, Ukiyo-e, Spring

Early 20th century

About

Artist: Koson Ohara (1877-1945) Title: Bunting perched on a camellia branch Publisher: Daikoku-ya Date: Early 20th century Dimensions: 18.8 x 37.1 cm Koson arranges his composition of a bunting on a camellia branch with ample negative space. In Japanese aesthetics, the concept 'ma', which roughly translates as 'space' or 'interval', acknowledges the importance of silence and distance in architecture and the arts. The weight is on the lower half of the design, which Koson gently balances with the tall branch rising above the poised bird. Camellias are full of symbolic meaning in Japanese culture. Unlike cherry blossoms whose petals fall one by one, a wilting camellia dramatically drops in one sudden motion. In particular, white camellias are said to reflect longing but also ideal love. Together with the bunting, both bird and flower represent the springtime. The slowly emerging buds tucked in by the dark foliage reflect the hope and gradual onset of the warmer months to come.
