Kono Barei was a Japanese painter, book illustrator, and art teacher. He was born as Yasuda Bairei and lived in Kyoto. Barei was a member of the Ukiyo-e school and was a master of kacho-e painting (depictions of birds and flowers) in the Meiji period of Japan. In 1852, he went to study with the Maruyama-school painter, Nakajima Raisho (1796-1871). After Raisho's death, Bairei studied with the Shijo-school master Shiokawa Bunrin (1808-77). He opened an art school in 1880 and his students included Takeuchi Seihō, Kawai Gyokudō, and Uemura Shōen.
