A mouthwatering pair of Edo p. (19th century) silk scrolls depicting the full moon rising in a turbulent sky and the sun rising over tempestuous waves by Kano Eishin restored and enclosed in an age darkened wooden box. Pigment and gold on silk, they have been completely remounted in fine silk patterned with clouds and ripples, and feature solid ivory rollers (these will be changed out of necessity if exporting). Each scroll is 58 x 215 cm each (23 x 84-1/2 inches). A scroll bearing this same seal is held in the collection of the Kansai University Open Research Center for Asian Studies.
Kano Eishin (no dates) was the adopted son of Kano Eigaku; and the late Edo period head of the Kyoto Branch of the Kano Family (disputed to be the 10th or 11th head), active around the Tenpo era (1830-1844). His distinctive style helped move the Kano School forward from redundancy by introducing Shijo school brush techniques.
