Tatematsu Kiseki – 立松輝石 (1876 – ?) – Waterfall – 滝

Shukei was one of the many successful students of the greats Okumura Sekiran, Kono Bairei and Takeuchi Seihō. He did very well under Takeuchi-san and became a director of his master’s painting society. He later returned for a while to his home town in Nagoya, but then returned to Tokyo to work with Yuki Somei on exhibitions and the direction of teaching painting techniques. The final image is an example of his signature from a piece in a private collection in Japan, which bears one of the same name seals, highly stylized, which reads “Kiseki”. The question mark for the date of death is usually used for the end of WWII, when it was impossible to keep track of all of the deaths, or for artists who died quietly in retirement, too old to paint for many years, in small boroughs of their cities and who’s date of death has yet to be retreived and added to modern publications, online or otherwise. Very large and very impressive. The highest quality silk was used for the mounting. Very good condition! *Please click on the upper left-hand corner of the photos to enlarge them a second time.
