A family of rabbits lie peacefully, their fluffy bodies illuminated by the full Autumn-moon rising over the horizon, pigment on silk with cloth border featuring bone rollers enclosed in the original signed wooden box dated Spring 1927. The scroll is 26 inches by 7 feet (66.5 x 214 cm) and is in overall excellent condition, with minor marks typical of age and handling.
Hotta Shuso (1894-1954) lived and worked in the scenic lakeside town of Suwa in Nagano prefecture. He studied under Ikegami Shuho and was the head of his atelier. His work was exhibited at the Teiten and Nitten National Exhibits among others and is remembered most for his realistic depiction of animals.
