Ohara Koson
Egrets and Crescent Moon

1926

About

Two white egrets at the edge of a pond are illuminated by a crescent moon rising above a stand of delicately silhouetted, windswept reeds. A fine impression, with fresh colors, on cream wove Japan paper; gaufrage (embossing) in the birds' plumage and fine bokashi in the sky and water surface; in excellent condition. Signed 'Shoson' with the Shoson red seal, lower right. A later printing (c. 1946-1957), published by Watanabe Shozaburo, with the 6 mm seal in the lower right image corner. One of the twenty-one prints by Koson which were shown in the first shin hanga exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1930. Impressions of this work are in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Smithsonian Institution Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, and Toledo Museum of Art.
