Bijin Watching Carp
by Kasamatsu, Shiro (1898-1991) - 笠松紫朗 紫浪
|Artist:||Kasamatsu, Shiro (1898-1991) - 笠松紫朗 紫浪|
|Title:||Bijin Watching Carp (1)|
|Medium:||Scroll/Makuri roll - 掛軸ーまくり|
|Format:||Long scroll - 掛軸, approx. 56 x 200cm|
|Condition:||Very good condition. Basically no wear and only very minor spot-soiling consistant with a scroll of this age.|
|Notes:||Hand-painted on silk, with deluxe elements such as gold metallic pigments, gold silk, and glazed clay/enamel end roller. The artist signature (upper left) is almost identical to that found on Kasamatsu's pre-war Watanabe-published woodblock prints, thus confirming this scroll's artist attribution and dating to the pre-war (1930s) period. His signatures on the post-war Unsodo-published prints have the same kanji characters of course, but are written quite differently. Very rare - I've seen only one other Kasamatsu scroll over the last seven years.
