Himejima Chikutei – 姫島竹亭 (1895-?) – Sansui (Landscape) – 山水

$200.00

Himejima-san was born in Nara Prefecture as a son of the famous samurai-class Nanga style painter, Himejima Chikugai. His real given name was Hiromichi and he lived in Osaka and studied painting under his father. Upon completion of his training, his father gave him the character for bamboo “chiku” from his own name, and so “bamboo outside” was succeeded by “bamboo pavilion”. He specialized in landscapes and bird and flower compositions and there is no precise date of death in 1945, suggesting that he died in the bombing of Osaka at the end of WWII, or of starvation soon afterwards. We have had the pleasure of selling his fine work thrice before. This piece has many stains and small damages but is still enjoyable and is a good example of pre-war Nanga painting. *Please click the top left corner of the pictures to enlarge them.
