Condition:Mount and painted silk area in overall fine condition. An odour of incense/mosquito coil smoke (this scroll was obviously displayed by the previous owner).

Notes:A very rare scroll by the bijin-ga artist Iwata Sentaro. This particular scene was used as the basis for one of his woodblock prints of the same title, in a series of bijin-ga prints published in the 1970s by various publishers (this scene was published by Kato Hanga). This scroll has a lovely deluxe end roller as one would expect. Overall scroll size is 57 x 134cm.
(1) This artwork is either untitled or the title is unknown.
