W19 Kee - HISTART 383 - Modern Asian Art

Modern Art in a Multi-Ethnic Asia

This vertical print frames a view of a landscape with an up close view of a bird in the upper right corner that takes up about thirty percent of the image.<br />The viewer is positioned alongside the bird, circling the sky above the twin peaks of a mountain. A crate floats in the water below while smaller birds flocking around it.  Snow covers the ground.<br />The signature and title markings are in the upper right corner, and in the middle along the left side above the landscape.

On the sign-boards inside are given the names of the engraver, Firobei; the printer, Heibei; and the artist, Ichiryusai.
