||Mid-Showa period, ca1950's-1970.
||Painting size: 16 1/2 x 41 1/2.
||Painting itself is black and grey "sumi" plus colors on light tan silk.
||Entire "kakejiku" (hanging scroll) is 21 1/2 x 72 overall.
||Light tanish silk (artwork) mounted against very nicely bamboo-patterned yellow-tan silk; tan silk top and bottom;
brown flower-patterned cream silk "ichimonji" brocade top/bottom; matching silk brocade hanging "futai"
at top; dark brown wooden end-pieced bottom roller.
(Few very tiny marks on artwork. Some faint spotting top and bottom silk and sides; long tape
repair bottom across roller.) Hangs very nicely.
||A beautifully hand-painted artwork, with very life-like depiction of tiger--nicely mounted as a hanging
scroll. Skilllfully executed brushwork and grey "sumi"-shading to sky behind. A unique, truly one-of-a-kind
