Sasaki Shunka Bunten Exhibited Screen, 1936
Please refer to our stock # ANR7109 when inquiring.
A superb scene of a deep forest lakeshore titled Aki-Itaru (Autun Solstice) by Sasaki Shunka exhibited at the 1936 Bunten National Exhibition. Geese take flight from the placid waters, silently lifting into the air beyond the trees on thier long journey south. The grasses have dried, and the leaves are like yellow gems hanging from the branches. Pigment on silk, the scene has been completely remounted reflecting the original style, and is ready for another hundred years. The screen is 68-1/2 x 79-1/2 inches (173.5 x 202 cm) and in excellent condition. It is published in the Nittenshi, volume 12, page 236.
