Koson Ohara (1877-1945) was a Japanese printmaker and painter who specialised in the traditional ukiyo-e style. He was born in Kanazawa, Japan and studied under the printmaker Suzuki Kason. Ohara became famous for his depictions of birds and flowers, which he depicted with great detail and a sense of realism. He was also known for his use of muted colours and delicate lines, which gave his prints a sense of calm and serenity. Ohara's works were highly sought after by collectors in Japan and abroad and he is considered one of the most important ukiyo-e artists of the 20th century.

Ohara Koson (1877–1945) was a Japanese painter and woodblock print designer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, part of the shin-hanga ("new prints") movement. Ohara Koson was famous as a master of kachō-e (bird-and-flower) designs. Throughout a prolific career, in which he created around 500 prints, he went by three different titles: Ohara Hōson (小原豊邨), Ohara Shōson (小原祥邨) and Ohara Koson.
