Meiji p. Silk Screen, Samurai Preparing for Battle
Please refer to our stock # ANR7006 when inquiring.
A young lord is assisted in donning his armor while receiving word from a grizzled retainer about the battle front on this genre painting from the rekishi-ga realm of historical paintings popular at the turn of the century. Innocence on the young masters face may be soon gone, as he prepares to enter the fray. The scene is performed with pigment on silk and has been completely remounted without any over-painting using antique gold border and a black lacquered wooden frame emulating the original with blue backing cloth. It is in excellent condition, dating from the later Meiji era (1890-1910). The screen is 145 x 150 cm (57 x 59 inches) and is in excellent condition.
Matsumoto Senkyo (1880-1934) was born in Ehime prefecture on the island of Shikoku, and was sent to Kyoto to study at the Kyoto Municipal School of Painting (mod. University of Art). He fell into the circle of Yamamoto Shunkyo, and exhibited with the Teiten and Bunten National Exhibitions. He passed away at a relatively young age of 55.
