The painting of an oxcart has a water stain on one side. It can be cleaned if desired, at cost. Imagery of the twelve months by Hayashi Bunto mounted as 12 individual scrolls housed three a piece in four signed wooden boxes all enclosed like drawers in one larger wooden box. Pigment and ink on paper in a silk border with bone rollers. They are 42 x 214 cm each (16-1/2 inches x 7 feet) and overall, in excellent condition.
Hayashi Bunto (1882-1966) studied painting under Yamamoto Shunkyo, and became a preeminent Shijo school artist of the early 20th Century. Disillusioned with the juried exhibitions, along with Kikuchi Keigetsu and Iguchi Kashu, he was instrumental in the founding of the Nihon Jiyu Gakkai. He is held in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, The Morikami museum as well as many private collections.
