About the art

This delicate surimono combines careful embossing techniques with embellishments of gold and ink to suggest the hazy atmosphere and sweet song of the bush warbler. Unreadable collector seal on reverse. Shunman was an ukiyo-e artist active during the first decades of the 19th century, famous for being a master of difficult print techniques, like gofun and mica, as well as being accomplished in lacquerware, shell-inlay, and kyoka poetry. After 1790, Shunman appears to have devoted himself almost entirely to surimono and private commissions, and became renowned for prints in the surimono style, this like one, that used luxury materials to great effect.
