    Hizo Nihon bijutsu taikan Vol 3

    Maruyama Oshin (1790-1838) was a son of Oju, the second son of Okyo, who was adopted into the main branch of the family in order to devote himself to painting and eventually become the family's next head. Most of his works, like that illustrated here, are rather small-scale and placid in their composition. Another feature is the frequent inclusion of Japanese poems; it is not known who inscribed the two poems in the present works, but their themes are, respectively, the cherry blossom at Arashi-yama and the moon over Otoko-yama.
