Bare trees rise up from mist in this slightly sinister screen by Yasuda Hanpo dated Autumn 1925. An ox stands, symbol of strength and solitude, in the deftly brushed landscape. In the distance birds take to the dark sky. The ink has been allowed to diffuse into the paper creating a mystical aura around the heavy creature. It is performed with ink on paper, mounted on gold with vibrant red lacquer frame. Each panel is 28 x 67-1/2 inches (71 x 172 cm) and is in excellent condition. Retaining the original cloth backing.
Yasuda Hanpo (1889-1947) was born in Niigata prefecture, and cme to Osaka to study painting under Mizuta Chikuho, and later Himejima Chikugai. He exhibited with the Bunten and Teiten National Exhibitions, and from 1922 exhibited also with the newly founded Nihon Nanga-In. Work by him is held in the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, Harvard Art Museum, MFA, British Museum and a host of others.
