$3,000.00 CAD

Yokoyama Seiki was born in Kyoto and was one of the best students of Matsumura Keibun (1779-1843) – who was the youngest brother of the founder of the Shijo School, Matsumura Goshun (1752-1811). He was renowned for his painted folding screens and was commissioned to paint such screens “fusuma” for the Imperial Palace after the fire of 1854. Seiki is famous for his Kacho-ga as well as for his “sansui” – landscape paintings. The contrast of light and shadow in this piece is masterful.

Geese are auspicious for a strong marriage and represent the “Yang”, -things open, bright, solar and communicative. Autumn grasses are auspicious for bountiful harvest, -and the moon is truth. This is an exceptional painting that belongs in the life of soul-mates.

A bit of edge wear in a few places along the sides of the mounting (see picture G), some other small moth eaten places, normal, small damages and normal, small stains, -but not so much as to distract from the beauty of the high quality silk and silk-blended mounting textiles. -Overall: good normal condition. Comes in an artisan handmade wood box. A remarkable painting that truly comes alive in person. ***In proper storage at home – not at my store – please message for a viewing.
