Original price was: $550.00 CAD.Current price is: $450.00 CAD.

Fugaku is the ancient way of saying (and sometimes still is the common way of referring to) a painting of Mt. Fuji.

Kita Busei is regarded as a very important painter of the late Edo period. His intensive study as a young man with the legendary Tani Bunchō established him as one of the leading painters of his time. Not only did he study under Bunchō, but he studied Kanō-ha and Rinpa-ha, all of which led to a greater mastery of his brush, and balance of colour and composition. In the end, he was able to carve out a distinguishable style of his own that was grounded in the hand and transmitted from his early greast master Tani-san. He was distinguished with the “Eye of the Law” for his contributions to ancient Buddhist culture.

Good, normal condition for its age -one small stain above the top of Fuji (see pictures), and other small stains and small damages and creases. Very elegant, high quality jikusaki (roller ends). Reinforced around the upper jikubou with the proper imported Japanese tape. Kita-san is held in the collections of the British Museum, The Met, Harvard Art Museum, Saiku Historical Museum, Sakai City Museum, and many other prestigious personal and private collections.
