||"Kingfisher" (given name)
||Late Meiji to early-Showa period, ca1900/30's (painting may be older and re-mounted?).
||Painting size: 12 x 47 3/4.
||Painting itself is "sumi-ink" of 3 colors on paper.
||Entire "kakejiku" (hanging scroll) is 16 3/4 x 77 overall.
||Paper (artwork) mounted on green-patterned paper; narrow green-patterned silk "ichimonji" brocade top/bottom;
lacquered dark brown wooden end-pieces.
(A fairly non-obtrusive area of repair to top artwork area; few minor marks/wear. Overall, quite clean. Some minor curling, typical of scroll mounts.)
||An eye-catching "sumi-e" painting of a little kingfisher, perched attentively atop a snag--nicely mounted as a hanging
scroll. A unique, truly one-of-a-kind artwork.
