||"Raccoon Dog" (given name)
||Late-Meiji to Taisho period, ca1900's/1920's.
||Painting size: 11 3/4 x 46 3/4.
||Painting itself is black and grey "sumi-ink" on tan paper.
||Entire "kakejiku" (hanging scroll) is 16 1/4 x 68 overall.
||Paper (artwork) mounted on grey white-patterned paper; patterned light-brown outer edge; dark brown wood end-pieced bottom roller.
||Good+++. (Minor staining and edge-wear top right corner; some light wear/wrinkling. Some curling, typical of scroll mounts, but hangs nicely.)
||An attractive and bold "sumi-e" painting of a Japanese raccoon-dog under a full moon--nicely mounted as a hanging
scroll. A unique, truly one-of-a-kind artwork.
