Birds by Buson.

#buson #painting #japanese #nanga #bunjinga

I've shown you birds by masters of Chinese flower and bird painting and Japanese masters of #ShinHanga  #Rimpa and #Ukiyo-e . For a change here's a Japanese #NANGA or #Bunjinga style work by Yosa Buson also a creator of Haiku.


The monochrome coloring adds to the drama of the paired scrolls featuring two crows and what may be a hawk or an eagle on the right. Note the balance of curves and diagonals rendered by expressive broad brushstrokes.
