Rare - 18th C. - Japanese Hanging Scroll - Tiger
Original & Rare Japanese Hand-Painted Hanging Scroll (Kakejiku) of a LARGE & magnificent tiger (tora)
Date: Edo Period, late 18th C. (late 1700s)
Artist: Of the Nagasaki School, more specifically the Nanpin School, which was the art name of Chinese painter, Shen Quan.
Title of Scroll: Mokozu (Ferocious Tiger)
Description: 100% Japanese genuine & authentic original kakejiku (hanging scroll). Fantastic hand-painted artwork (this is not a print nor machine copy) of a HUGE tiger mounted onto an elaborate green silk scroll! The pictures don't really do it justice as they simply cannot capture its true size. This is simply museum-worthy artwork!
Condition is good for its age with a bit of wear here and there, but overall nothing serious. The worst of it is a tiny hole at the top left of the scroll away from the artwork itself. Please see and judge from photos.
Size of entire scroll: 194 cm x 66 cm
Size of picture only: 109 cm x 52 cm
No wooden box for this scroll.
A fantastic and very rare antique Japanese hanging scroll depicting a magnificent-looking tiger! The beauty and sheer size of the artwork would no doubt make for a stunning conversation piece at the home, office, gym or dojo. It truly is a brilliant piece of Japanese antiquity!
