Item:123717972351Kōno Bairei (幸野 楳嶺), renowned Japanese painter, book illustrator, and art teacher, was born in 1844 and died in 1895. Born in Kyoto, he was a member of the Ukiyo-e school. His metier was depiction of birds, flowers, and landscapes. As a pre-adolescent boy he studied under Nakajima Raisho (1796–1871) and after this master’s death, under Shiokawa Bunrin (1808–77). In 1878, in collaboration with others, he founded the Kyoto Prefectural Painting School, which survives today as the Kyoto University of Arts. In evidence of the respect accorded Kōno during his lifetime, he had about 60 apprentices in his studio. In the years just prior to his death, Kōno produced 66 brush drawings of chrysanthemums after which the three-volume book, Kiku Hyakushu (楳嶺菊百種). Three years ago, I purchased 22 of these brush drawings at auction from a vendor in Japan. I am now selling these exquisite preparatory drawings off individually.
