[KAKEMONO - HANGING SCROLL] TSUDA SEIF█, ART - Momohara" Landscape of a Mountain Stream, Dancing Cranes

1921. [KAKEMONO - HANGING SCROLL] Tsuda SEIF█, artist. "MOMOKAWA" LANDSCAPE PAINTING OF A MOUNTAIN STREAM, DANCING CRANES. Hanging scroll, image size 135.2 X 33.4 cm. Beautifully mounted on brocade with BONE jiku. The painting is signed and sealed by Seifű (1880-1978), an extraordinarily influential artists and designer who painted in oils, in traditional watercolor on silk and paper, created designs and bookbindings, etc. etc. A protege of such masters as the designer Furuya K˘rin and the author and poet Natsume S˘seki and later an influence upon generations of creative artists, Seifű has here created a free and easy Nihonga work in color ink on silk, dated Taish˘ 10 [1921] and sealed by him. Its eccentric spirit seems to have a touch of Tomioka Tessai to it. Certainly they must have met, as Seifű illustrated several design books with calligraphed encomia done by Tessai in the 1900s. But, in any case, it is also reminiscent of some of the book-bindings he was doing during the same period. The brushwork and calligraphy are first-rate, the presentation impeccable. In a wooden box and worn outer cardboard slipcase with written title label. Ill.: TSUDA SEIF█.
