The sun rises as a dark orb in a crimson sky over billowing white clouds, the fore still lost in cool blue shadow on the silk canvas of this unusual painting signed Taiga enclosed in the original signed wooden box dated a spring day in Showa 16 (1941). Pigment on silk in a cloth border with faux ivory rollers. It is 48.7 x 208 cm (19-1/4 x 82 inches) and in overall fine condition. Artists of this period are very difficult to trace, as few youths and few records survived the devastation that would follow shortly and governmental policy would oversee the annihilation of an entire generation.
