Details

The purchase of a print from a Tokyo bookstore prompted the research and writing of this study of Shotaro Kaga who, with the orchid grower Kenkichi Goto began a pioneering breeding programme in the 1920s. Kaga commissioned watercolourists and woodblock artists to record the plants and the complete set of 83 prints, entitled Rankafu was published in 1946. This volume reproduces these masterpieces of botanical art along with information about the orchids and a further 60 watercolours by Zuigetsu Ikeda.
