I apologize for reposting this, but I had some trouble with Photobucket earlier in the week. Any help with this ID would be incredible.
My mother just inherited a picture she remembers her parents buying when they lived in Japan back in the 1960s. She has always loved this, and I have also been around it for my whole life. I have really been hoping to get her any info I can about the artist. Iíve spent a lot of time browsing online databases of artist seals, but no luck yet. I have learned about kachō-e, covering bird and flower prints, and it seems like this would be from the shin-hanga art movement. I donít see any signature other than a red seal. Mostly just looking for a name, so I can learn the story of the artist and share it with my mother.
She has always thought this is a watercolor, but I assume it is a print. Does anyone have a guess?
Here is the seal (also, hopefully, attached to this post):
Here is a detail of the work:
Here is the work so you can see positioning of the seal:
