Insho Domoto (1891-1975) was a renowned Japanese painter known for his traditional-style Nihonga artworks. His works often depicted nature, landscapes, and historical subjects, but animals featured quite prominently as well.

A special exhibition taking place at Kyoto's Insho Domoto Museum of Art will delve into a variety of Domoto's works that depict creatures of all shapes and sizes, including cows inspired by his fascination with India through to rabbits painted for Koyata Iwasaki, a patron born in 1879 (the year of the rabbit).
