Postcard

Flowers and birds of the four seasons

By Sakai Hoitsu, Edo period, dated 1818

<About the Item>
Sakai Hoitsu was born in Edo (present-day Tokyo) as the second son of the lord of Himeji domain. A keen student of haiku and Noh drama, Hoitsu was greatly influenced by Ogata Korin and contributed to the revival of the Rinpa style in Edo. Taken from Hoitsu's scroll painting of seasonal flowers and birds, this picture depicts a refreshing, summer scene of waterside flowers such as irises and cow lilies.
