Nakamura Hōchū prized the design acumen of earlier painter Ogata Kōrin (1658–1716) and honored him with this two-volume set of woodblock printed images. While Hōchū sampled the original compositions from Kōrin’s works, the prints in these books are heavily inflected with his own loose, whimsical drawing style.
