Japanese Edo p. Nagasaki School Tiger Scroll, Shuseki
Please refer to our stock # ALR2977 when inquiring.
Sold, Thank you!
A 17th – 18th century Neko-tora Tiger by Nagasaki school artist Watanabe Shuseki performed with ink and color on paper in yellow bronze silk border with bone rollers. The parchment is aged and gray, giving the sense of a wall painting in some ancient tomb. The scroll is 14 x 63 inches (36.5 x 160 cm). There is some damage to the lower extremities of the paper, and minor cupping. Watanabe Shuseki (1639-1707) lived in Nagasaki and was a proponent of that school trained under Itsunen. Works by the artist are held in the collection of the Kobe Municipal Museum of Nanban Art and Nagasaki Municipal Museum.
