The artist Ukiyo-e woodblock printing (shin-hanga) was focusing on works about birds and flowers, as well as other scenes from nature.While the Western approach to natural history was based on description and classification, the Japanese view was concerned with how everything fits together and how it relates to experience, perception, and aesthetics.The kachō-e master artist managed to capture the experience of being crushed under the saturated color of a flower or falling under the spell of the intelligent personality of a bird in the wild, both by expression and by the direction of his emotions.
