A complete set of three fusuma doors hand-painted with plum, pine and bamboo (the three gentlemen of Literati lore) backed with a waterfall and turtle dated 1871 (pine) and 1872 (plum) by Matsuoka Kansui and made for an opening 233 x 173 cm. Each is performed with ink on paper mounted on the white paper panels of the doors. Each door measures 31 x 68-1/2 Inches (79 x 174 cm) and are in overall fine condition, with a water stain in the upper corner of one and marks typical of age. They were one of several sets of doors, all hand painted, taken from the former home of a great patron of the arts during the Bakumatsu-Meiji era in Hyogo prefecture which we will be listing.
Kansui (1829-1887) was a samurai-artist of the Tsuyama Feif trained in the literati arts under Igarashi Chikusa. Work by the artist is held in the Victoria Albert, British Museum, Morikami Collection and the Clark collection among others.
