Nagai Ikka – 長井一禾 (1869-1940) – Crow – 烏

SOLD. THANK-YOU!

Japan’s most famous “Crow Sensei”, Nagai Ikka studied Shijō-ha with the great master Suzuki Shōnen (1849-1918), Nakano Kimei and Hirafuku Suian.  Once he was established he collaborated with the great Nakahara Nantembō, who brushed the calligraphy beside Ikka’s crows. Japan’s highest quality coal black ink is expertly applied to silk here in a manner such that the crow is almost ready to leap off of the scroll. This is a technique that his master Suzuki-san helped him to refine. One Japanese maple leaf reminds us of that which is wabi-sabi. The crow represents the yang and is also symbolic of caring for one’s parents. Some water stains on the upper right side of the mounting (see picture 3), otherwise in normal good condition. Fine old blend of silk, cotton and hemp was used for the mounting, making it very organic in appearance, -this combination almost woody. Smaller than the average scroll and so more manageable with limited wall space (dimensions below). Please click on the upper left corner of the images to enlarge them.

SOLD. THANK-YOU!
