Antique Japanese Hanging Scroll Painting (Kakejiku) - Little Houses on the Snowy Mountain
A very old work of art in the form of a Japanese scroll or Kakejiku. This fine piece of work depicts three small traditional Japanese thatched roof dwellings nestled amongst the bare trees in the depth of a snowy winter landscape. The snowy mountain overlooks the whole scene that terminates with the artists signature and the snow covered fields on the lower right. Beige coloured handmade paper and brocade form the frame (heaven and earth) with jingyan (惊燕; literally "frightened swallows") hanging from the stave at the top. Roller and zhoutou in good order.
A lovely piece of work that comes with its' own signed and sealed wood presentation box.
