Hand-Printed Post Card from Kyoto

Itō Jakuchū (1716–1800) was a Japanese Painter of the mid Edo period when Japan had closed its doors to the outside world. Many of his paintings concern traditionally Japanese subjects, particularly chickens and other birds. Many of his otherwise traditional works display a great degree of experimentation with perspective, and with other very modern stylistic elements.
