Mamiya Tadashi – 間宮正 (1911-1984) – Koi – 鯉

SOLD. -Thank-you!

Mamiya-san studied under the great Noda Kyuho, and retained many of his techniques, incorporating them further with more modern techniques and materials. His work is reminiscent of some of his fellow modern landscape painters from the west. A full biography (with a fairly decent translation [one word really off and quite amusing]) can be seen here. He exhibited at the 1936 Summer Olympics and is held in The Museum of Modern Art, Saitama.

Reflective, sparkling pigments were mixed into the paint that have a lovely effect when seen in person, and which complement the reflective qualities of the high-quality silk/cotton mounting. It is difficult to capture the exact color-tone of this piece because of the many reflective parts of the textile and it actually leans greyer than it looks. Good condition (one tiny flaw on the surface of the painting). *The ancient Buddhist symbolism makes this piece auspicious for wealth and abundance, propagation of the family, and freedom from restraints.
