||Mid-Showa period, ca 1940's/60's.
||Painting size: 13 1/4 x 53.
||Painting itself is of jet-black "sumi" inks on light-colored paper.
||Entire "kakejiku" (hanging scroll) is 18 1/2 x 77 1/4 overall.
||Paper (artwork) mounted on dark blue silk; gold-patterned tan-colored silk
"ichimonji" brocade top/bottom; BONE end-pieced bottom roller.
(Few faint scattered spots; slight wear. Very clean. Nearly wrinkle-free--hangs nicely.)
||An attractively painted calligraphy piece, boldly executed with expressively wide brushwork--nicely mounted as a hanging
scroll. A unique, truly one-of-a-kind artwork.
