Yokoyama Seiki – 横山清暉 (1792-1864) – Fuji Sansui – 富士山

$800.00 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 also very well known for his Kacho-ga as well as for his “sansui” – landscape paintings. This sansui is a fine example of an expertly-executed piece done for one of his more humble patrons. It still shows the great quality of the ink and the great skill of Seiki after more than 160 years and the painted-in-one-stroke Mt. Fuji is about as highly skilled as one can achieve. High quality ink sticks sometimes show shades of blues or greens, and in this piece, strong hues of green are beautifully and subtly blended into the treeline.

By his own hand, before his signature, dated to the pre-Meiji restoration “Tenpō” calendar, and so painted in the last two decades of Yokoyama-san’s life.

Normal condition for its age (folding lines, small damages, small bug eaten parts, lower jikubou is still well attatched – see pictures).
