Nishimura Hodo (Japanese, active 1930s)
Iris, c. 1939, by Nishimura Hodo
Nishimura Hodo designed kacho-e (bird and flower) and landscape prints in Japan's 20th century shin hanga (new prints) art movement. Here, with sensitivity and precision, Hodo interprets the beauty of the iris, which holds a treasured place in the folklore of Japan.
