Crabs clamber about in the seaside bracken, one surmounting the rim of this Blue and white porcelain bowl decorated by important female Osaka artist and poet Kawabe Seiran enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 18 cm (7 inches) diameter, 9 cm (3-1/2 inches) tall and in excellent condition, wrapped in the original wrapping cloth. Kawabe Seiran (1868-1931) was a rare female Osaka painter trained in the literati style painting under female artist Hashimoto Seiko in Osaka. She also became adept at Chinese style poetry under Mega Yusho, and calligraphy under Teranishi Ekido and Murata Kaiseki. Through her Juku she served as mentor to a great number of later Osaka female Painters. A retrospective of her life work was held recently at the Mie Prefectural Museum of Art.
