Save 24%
Very rare and exquisitely executed pair of original Japanese paintings. The first we have seen in this style with such high relief. When seen in person, they will not disappoint.
One portrays a beautiful traditional Japanese scene on the shore of a mountain stream, the large trees in the foreground rendered in high relief, and in the distance on a small bridge, an old, bent over man crosses a cascading river, walking-stick in hand. In the foreground a house is nestled amongst the gnarled pines with two people on the deck, another lady in a Kimono walking toward the house.
The other portrays what could be the other side of the lake, Japanese fishing boats and smaller houses in the distance. Gnarly pines over the look the water front scene.
Presented in the original hand decorated wood frames with barely discernable cherry blossom decorations typical of the Edo period.
Each signed in gold and stamped with a red 'chop' on the left and right as shown.
Early 19th Century. Edo period.
