Kobayashi Kahaku was greatly admired during his lifetime and became one of the leading artists in Kyoto; his landscapes and natural scenes were particularly appreciated. In 1911 at the age of 15 he moved to Tokyo to study under Imamura Shiko (1880-1916) and later with Yasuda Yukihiko (1884-1978) who were both influenced by Okakura Tenshin who founded the Nihon Bijutsuin. Shiko and Yukihiko worked together to establish a new school of Japanese style painting based on Yamato-e. This influence can be seen in these charming screens which depict the beauty of nature with bright colours; the birds and bamboo shoots finely detailed and with the ground just suggested with a few strokes of the brush.
