||Early-Showa period, ca1930/40's (although artwork may be older).
||Painting size: 17 3/4 x 49 1/4.
||Painting itself is of grey and black "sumi" inks and browns on light tan paper.
||Entire "kakejiku" (hanging scroll) is 22 1/2 x 75 overall.
||Light tanish paper (artwork) mounted on mauve flower-patterned gold silk; brown geometic-patterned tan silk
"ichimonji" brocade top/bottom; early composite material end-pieced bottom roller.
(Scattered very faint toning/spotting; several old professional restorations to few small
previously thin areas.) Quite clean. Hangs very nicely.
||Attractively painted and wonderfully expressive image of Daruma (may be an older Meiji era artwork)--nicely mounted as a hanging
scroll. A unique, truly one-of-a-kind artwork.
