SERIES OF JAPANESE
DRAWINGS. I. BIRD AND
BRANCH, BY MORIKAWA
In this series we propose to present to our
readers reproductions of drawings by Japanese
artists which have not been hitherto published.
Our selections will be principally made from the
originals in the hands of collectors in Europe and
America, and will consist for the most part of
works having especial technical interest to artists
and designers. The example illustrated on the
opposite page is from an original drawing in
possession of the Editor of The Studio, by
Morikawa Sobun, an artist now living in Kioto.
The original was prepared by him for reproduc-
design for a book-cover by a. h. carder tion as a book-illustration.
