The work of print artist Ohara Koson (1877-1945) mainly consists of prints of birds and flowers, characterised by their peaceful charm. This book about Koson is the first Western publication of his oeuvre of prints and paintings. It provides all known information on the artist's life and work, his teachers and publishers, facsimiles of his signatures and seals and illustrations of an estimated seventy-five percent of his total print output. This title is the definitive reference book for Koson collectors. "Crows, cranes & camellias" accompanied an exhibition of Koson's work held at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam in 2001.
