“Reclining Tiger” | By: Ohara Koson (1887-1945)
______________________________________________
Created sometime between 1910-1930’s, this brilliant print depicts a beautiful reclining tiger, sitting, relaxing and gazing into the distance. The tiger is depicted with gorgeous yellow eyes, a big muscular body with powerful forelimbs. Its fur appears dense and heavy, with realistic colouration varying between shades of orange and brown with white ventral areas and distinctive black stripes.
The style of the print, as with most of the artists works, is reminiscent of Japanese Nihonga painting. 
Ohara Koson was a well trained Japanese painter and print designer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, part of the shin-hanga "new prints" movement. He worked at first with publishers Akiyama Buemon (Kokkeidō) and Matsuki Heikichi (Daikokuya), signing his work “Koson”.
Starting around 1926, he became associated with the publisher Watanabe Shōzaburō (1885-1962), the leading publisher of the shin-hanga movement, signing his work Shōson. He also worked with the publisher Kawaguchi, signing his works Hōson. 
Koson’s works were exhibited abroad and sold well, particularly in the United States in the 1920’s and 30’s.
