Ohno Bakufu (1888-1976) was a painter who is well-regarded today for his still life and landscape themed woodblock prints. Best known for his "Great Japanese Fish Picture Collection" series produced in 1937-1941 in six volumes, of which the first editions are exceptionally rare, many of Bakufu's prints possess a distinctive style using vivid and rich colors.
