Full Moon with Crow on Plum Branch, 1880s. Creator: Kawanabe Kyosai (Japanese, 1831-1889)

Full Moon with Crow on Plum Branch, 1880s. The accompanying poem may be translated as: The plum accompanies their squawking forms; Its fragrance assaults their feathers. Beautiful shadows of the branches in the moonlight Climb toward the study curtain. The pair of crows that have lodged in my house Cry and make to fly a way, Under the bright moon in the depths of the night

EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "Full Moon with Crow on Plum Branch" transports us back to the 1880s in Japan. Created by the talented Kawanabe Kyosai, a renowned Japanese artist from the Edo period, this color woodblock print captures a mesmerizing scene under the moonlight. The image showcases a full moon shining brightly in the night sky, casting its ethereal glow upon a plum branch. Perched delicately on this branch is a crow, adding an intriguing element to the composition. The accompanying poem beautifully describes how the fragrance of plum blossoms entices these majestic birds while their shadows dance against the moonlit branches. Kyosai's attention to detail and mastery of color bring life to this artwork. The study curtain in the background adds depth and texture to the overall composition, enhancing its visual appeal. As we gaze at this print, we can almost hear the cries of two crows that have found refuge within Kyosai's house. Their calls echo through our imagination as they prepare for flight beneath the radiant moon. Preserved by The Cleveland Museum of Art and shared by Heritage Images, this piece serves as a testament to Kyosai's artistic brilliance and offers us a glimpse into Japan's rich cultural heritage during one of its most vibrant periods – Edo era (1615-1868).
