Komori Soseki (sometimes known as Shoseki) was a designer of kacho-e prints during the 1920's and early 1930's. His prints, now difficult to find, were published by Kawaguchi and Sakai. Unfortunately, very little is known about Soseki. Though his prints depict rather typical kacho-e subject matter, they are noteworthy for their sensitive rendering and lush printing. Of particular beauty is the blended printing of the water in Mallard Ducks, and the colorful gradient edges of the lily pads in Moorhens. Soseki's prints are approximately hosoban size and measure about 14 x 7.5 inches.
