Featured here a tempestuous scene of furious waves and dark roiling clouds dominated by the crimson orb of the rising sun, seeming ready to purge the sky of its violence. Depicted in ink and mineral paints on silk, the unsigned painting is immediately bordered in patterned brocade, extended in rough beige silk and terminates in large bone rollers. It is very rare to find a painting of this genre depicted with such power, most are of much calmer seas; even if the waves are choppy one gets a feeling of quiet from the blue sky. A most unusual scene dating circa 1930, it measures 25-1/2 by 75-1/2 inches (64.5 x 192 cm). The edges of the beige fields are slightly tattered, but the scroll is otherwise in very good condition.
