A congregation of Black Crowned Night Herons blossom like fruit among the pastel leaves on this two panel screen by Ikegami Shuho dating from late in his life. These gray tones and the overall style are indicative of his most mature style, the late 1930s to 1940s. Pigment on paper, it is signed and sealed in the lower right corner, with a “Tomoshiru” label on back which is titled Sagi no Gun (Group of Egrets) and is also signed and stamped by the artist. The screen is 141 x 152 cm (55 inches by 5 feet) and has been completely restored without over-painting.
Ikegami Shuho (1874-1944) was born the son of Nihonga painter Ikegami Shuuka in Nagano Prefecture, given name Kunisaburo. He studied under Araki Kanpo (1831–1915) in Tokyo and began to show his work at the annual Miya-ten National exhibition (Bunten, Teiten) from its inception in 1908 until his death, winning prizes in 1914, 1916 and 1917. He would later serve as a juror at that prestigious event. He excelled in both landscapes and Kacho-ga (bird and flower painting) and was immensely popular during his lifetime.
