A Work of the Month

Shiba Kokan Kaburaki Baikei
Birds, insects, flowers and plants

Both Shiba Kokan and Kamuraki Baikei are painters trained in the Nagasaki school and at one time both of them lived around Hamamatsu-cho, so it is easily imagined that they knew each other. This pair of works by the two each vividly depicts creatures near watersides. Breathtaking details in bright colors are the characteristics of the Nagasaki school, but what amazes the viewer is the shrewd sense of observation. Look at the dancing butterfly or the mantis hiding quietly that are so realistically painted, whether their legs, antenna or wings. These persistently realistic pictures show the strong passion to master the latest trend brought from the continent as well as their rivalry.
