Design History:
This design is one of several in a small series of garden flowers which Hodo created for Takemura. This series was in direct imitation of Maria Gabo's Western Flowers Series, and this particular design has a direct counterpart in that series which was used as a model for the Hodo design (see below).

Because there are almost certainly additional designs which remain to be documented, this series has not yet been assigned sequence numbers. For now this design is arbitrarily labeled with an alphabetic character since there is no publication date available.

Species Illustrated:
Hippeastrum hybrids. Amaryllis (the incorrect but popular name from English) is now usually written アマリリス, amaririsu. The title as it appears on the print is アマリース, amariisu, which is a typographical error for アマリヽス, amaririsu, a variant spelling.
