In a secluded hollow punctuated by a brisk cascade deer graze on grass tinged with fall color on this fabulous large autumnal scroll by Yamashita Chikusai enclosed in the original signed wooden box. Pigment on silk with superb kinrande mounting featuring large bone rollers. The scroll is 37 x 78 inches (94 x 199 cm) and in perfect condition dating from the Taisho to early Sowa period (1920s).
Yamashita Chikusai (1885-1973) was born in Kyoto and studied under the important turn of the century master Yamamoto Shunkyo (1871-1933) from the age of fifteen, becoming one of his highest ranking pupils. He regularly exhibited at the Bunten and Teiten. In 1911, when he was 25 years old, he won a prize at the Bunten. Later, he won eight prizes in a row. One of these eight was a first prize. After the Bunten had been reorganized as the Teiten, Chikusai became a committee member. His painting “Arashiyama in Rain” is held in the permanent collection of the The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo
