WATANABE Kazan attr., Pine and Chrysanthemum, 19th C.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Ink on paperMounted as a scroll painting in a dragon-patterned damask brocade frame with fine turned endsJapan, Edo period (1603-1868), 19th centuryAttributed to WATANABE Kazan (1793-1841) – Japanese painter and statesmanDepiction of chrysanthemums under a pine treeBox inscription by WATANABE Kaseki and YAMASHITA SegaiDimensions: 138 x 54.5 cmGood condition This scroll painting is attributed to the Japanese artist WATANABE Kazan. The box inscription by WATANABE Kaseki, Kazan’s son, which was written for a school in Todai, describes how Kazan was concerned about the shogunate's policies and his motivations and hopes for Japan were ruined when he was placed under house arrest in 1840. Condition: The scroll painting is in good condition with some traces of age and wear. The painting has folds and crease from long-term display. Due to the size and weight of the scroll, the lower section of the mounting displays tears and damages . Remounting is recommended since the mounting seems to date to the late Edo or Meiji period. The dimensions are 138 x 54.5 cm (length x width). WATANABE Kazan (1793-1841) Kazan was born as WATANABE Sadayasu, the son of an upper class samurai for the Tahara clan, a small clan now part of present-day Aichi prefecture, and developed his artistic talent from a young age. Kazan once had the opportunity to become the disciple of TANI Buncho and was able to improve his skills as an artist. However, due to his position in the clan, WATANABE Kazan was selected to become the Kar? (elder councilor) for the clan, which left little time for painting. During the 1830s, Kazan became a successful politician, implementing agricultural methods like using whale's oil as pesticide for rice and promoting the production of other grains. However, writings by Kazan that were seen as critical of the shogunate and promoting Western ideas were found in 1839, leading to his exile to Tahara, his home province. Kazan's disciple, FUKUDA Hanko, wanted to help him (since Kazan was living on the edge of poverty) and established an art salon to sell Kazan's paintings so that Kazan could use the money to buy food. The shogunate noticed the activity that was going on and placed Kazan under house arrest. Kazan felt this would further burden his clan and decided to commit ritual suicide (seppuku) in 1841. Kazan's adopted son, Shoka was not allowed to build a grave for Kazan and no grave existed until the fall of the shogunate in 1868. WATANABE Kazan was heavily influenced by Western art, creating his unique style with elements from both Japanese and European art.

OKAMOTO Toyohiko, Painting, Scholar's Rock and Prunus, 1841

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Ink on paperMounted as a scroll painting in a late Edo period mountingJapan, 1841OKAMOTO Toyohiko (1773-1845) – Japanese painterDepiction of a scholar's rock and prunusDimensions: 114.8 x 62.48 cmGood condition This Japanese scroll painting from the Edo period (1603-1868) by OKAMOTO Toyohiko (1773-1845) is quite interesting in that the motif used, a prunus concealed behind a moss or lichen-covered scholar's rock, is usually favoured by literati and nanga artists. The prunus is a symbol often seen in Chinese and Japanese literati objects and paintings, resembling the fungus thought to produce the elixir of life. The scroll was painted with sumi ink on paper and features an inscription saying the work was created in the Year of the Metal Ox during the Tenpo era (1830-1844), Chinese New Year, which would mean this scroll painting dates to 1841. It is signed by OKAMOTO Toyohiko with two seals, one reading Toyohiko on the top and another reading Yasuhiko, the artist’s other studio name, on the bottom. Condition: The scroll is in good condition with signs of age. Insect damage is visible in the central part of the scroll leading down from the honshi (painted area of the scroll) to the bottom of the mounting. The dimensions are 114.8 x 62.48 cm (length x width). OKAMOTO Toyohiko (1773-1845) OKAMOTO Toyohiko was born as the son of a Sake merchant and brewer in the present-day city of Kurashiki in Okayama Prefecture. Toyohiko became a student of MATSUMURA Goshun in Kyoto at the age of 25 and soon after, his skills flourished. Toyohiko's fame as a painter spread throughout the capital, rivaling that of the established artist KISHI Ganku. By about age 30, Toyohiko was given an opportunity to sit in a gathering with noted artists such as TANI Buncho and KISHI Ganku and poets TACHIBANAChikage and KAGAWA Kageki, and presented a painting during this event. It is thought that thanks to this opportunity, Toyohiko was commissioned to produce works for the Shugakuin Rikyu palace in the north-eastern section of the imperial capital. Although OKAMOTO Toyohiko is categorized as a Shijo school artist, he inherited the styles used by MARUYAMA Okyo, the founder of the Maruyama school, and YOSA Buson from his master MATSUMURA Goshun.

TOMIOKA Tessai, Scroll Painting, Literati Landscape, Meiji

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Ink and slight colors on paperMounted as a scroll painting in a simple turquoise damask silk mountingJapan, Meiji period (1868-1912)TOMIOKA Tessai (1837-1924) – Japanese painter and calligrapherDepiction of a mountainous landscape Box inscription by FUKAYA KingakuDimensions: 137 x 29.4 cmGood condition This Japanese scroll painting from the Meiji period (1868-1912) by TOMIOKA Tessai (1837-1924) shows a landscape in the 'beihou' style. It features an inscription, signature and seal by the artist and is mounted in the maru hyoso style using a turquoise to celadon green donsu (non-gold) brocade silk with cloud patterns. Many Nanga to Bunjin (literati) artists have painted landscapes in the style known as 'beihou', where the tip of the brush is used to paint dots on the paper to show a forested mountain. This type of landscape is thought to have originated with the literati artists during the Song dynasty (960-1279) in China, with many examples being passed on to Japan in the 15th century. By the 17th up to the 19th century, the literati movement gained popularity and many artists began to develop their own unique styles of literati landscapes. This particular work is believed to have been painted when Tessai was about 30 years old (compared with examples from various exhibition catalogues). The landscape appears to show how a literati or hermit yearns to live in the mountains, away from other other humans, and enjoy nature. The inscription by Tessai states how the water and the mountains seem far in the distance. The scroll comes with a box that was inscribed by FUKAYA Kingaku (1849 -1924?) during the winter of 1916. FUKAYA Kingaku was known for his connections with many artists in Kyoto during the Meiji period and was a personal friend of TOMIOKA Tessai. The interesting point of the box inscription is that Kingaku, instead of using the normal characters used to describe an authentication or valuation of a piece, used a character to signify his affinity or attachment to the piece, which might suggest that the painting had been part of Kingaku's collection. Condition: The scroll painting is in good condition with light wear, including minor staining as well as slight creases in the central to lower area. The dimensions are 137 x 29.4 cm (length x width). Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance. Auctionata charges the resale rights tax pursuant to Section 26 of the German Copyright Act (UrhG) towards the buyer in case of the sale of an original work of art or photography prior to 70 years having lapsed since the death of their creator. Therefore, Auctionata charges when purchasing a good – if a protection as an original work of art or photography is given – starting from a hammer price of EUR 400 an additional amount, which is calculated according to Section 26 (2) German Copyright Act (UrhG) and which does not exceed the amount of EUR 12,500.

Ivory Okimono of a Sitting Man, Japan, Meiji

Description: IvoryJapan, Meiji period (early 20th century)With characters on the pantsSmall-scale sculpture with legs on the shouldersPants with grey hatchingDimensions: 6.7 x 6 x 5 cm (height x width x depth)Very good conditionThis item can only be delivered to an address within the EU Okimono The literal translation of the word ‘okimono’ is ‘put thing’, meaning ‘object for display’. The term denotes Japanese art carvings, which developed in the 19th century out of netsuke craft. The reason for this was an incisive change in Asian everyday fashion. European clothing became chic and invariably superseded the Kimono, to which netsuke were worn. The now unemployed netsuke artists began to make larger objects, which were very popular abroad as well. Condition: The ivory figure is in very good condition with slight signs of age and wear. The figure shows a dent on the pants. It measures 6.7 x 6 x 5 cm (height x width x depth). (lez) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Ivory, carvedJapan, late 19th centuryNetsuke depicting a grassing deerOn a textured plinthDimensions: 6.5 x 6 x 2.3 cm (height x width x depth)Good conditionThis item can only be delivered to an address within the EU Japanese Netsuke Japanese netsuke are small carvings hung on cords as a counterweight to the sagemono (“hanging container”) that were attached to the belt of pocket-less Asian clothing. This enabled the wearer to carry small objects like pipes, tobacco, money or other personal belongings. Netsuke were initially made out of root wood, other materials also used were ivory, whale and walrus teeth, boxwood, bamboo and staghorn, among others. A variety of mythological symbols, especially the Seven Lucky Gods, were depicted, as well as animals, flowers, fruits and everyday objects and scenes. Netsuke originated in the late 17th century with the strengthening of the middle class and remained in use until the 1880s, when the kimono went out of style as an item of everyday clothing. Condition: The deer shows a small breakage on the right ear and a visible crack on the back. Apart from that the netsuke is in good condition. The dimensions are 6.5 x 6 x 2.3 cm (height x width x depth). (vsc) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

KOBAYASHI Kiyochika, Hand-Painted Ukiyo-e, 20th C.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Ink and colors on paperMounted as a scroll painting in a silk brocade frameJapan, 20th centuryKOBAYASHI Kiyochika (1847-1915) – Japanese ukiyo-e painter and printmakerHumorous depiction of a geisha and monk Dimensions: 187.7 x 43.2 cmGood condition This scroll painting by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist KOBAYASHI Kiyochika (1912-1926) shows a humorous motif often seen in the artist’s work, a lady covering the eyes of Bodhidharma. The painting features a rather interesting inscription on the back about how the artist had first met the owner of this scroll, a doctor, in the 14th year of Meiji (1881) at Ryogoku, where KOBAYASHI had sent his work to a woodblock centre in the region. KOBAYASHI fell ill in November 1915 and travelled to Kyoto for the anniversary celebrations of the emperor’s coronation in Kyoto. While there he saw the doctor, who treated KOBAYASHI without remembering who he was. When KOBAYASHI passed away a few days later, the scroll was mounted and given to the doctor in appreciation of his kindness. Condition: The scroll painting is in good condition with common signs of age and wear. There are creases to the image and the mounting. The dimensions are 187.7 x 43.2 cm (length x width). KOBAYASHI Kiyochika (1847-1915) KOBAYASHI Kiyochika has been described as “the last important ukiyo-e master and the first noteworthy print artist of modern Japan”(According to Richard Lane's book, “Images of the Floating World”). Born as the son of a government official, he was heavily influenced by Western art and studied it under Charles Wirgman (1832-1891), publisher of the first Japanese magazine, Japan Punch. Kiyochika is said to be the last ukiyo-e artist to lyrically depict Tokyo during the Meiji cultural enlightenment. Kiyochika, while best-known today as a print designer, was also an illustrator and cartoonist. His hand painted works tend to be highly sought after as with woodblock prints, many copies can be found but with works made by hand, each piece is rather distinct or only even only a single one may exist. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.

The inscription on the box certifies the authenticity of the scroll and was written by a later abbot of Tofukuji, FUKUSHIMA Keido (1933-2011), who was well known within Western Zen circles for his transmission of Rinzai, a school of Zen in Japanese Buddhism that focuses on meditation, samu (physical work done with mindfulness) and koans – anecdotes, statements or questions that are meant to provoke meditative thought leading to great insight. The Zen koan of this scroll is Meigetsu Seifu (“A clear moon and pure wind”), making this tea scroll perfect for a moonlit setting or a tea ceremony in spring or autumn. Condition: The scroll is in excellent condition with fine creases but no major ones, which attests to the high quality of the mounting. The dimensions are 170 x 33.5 cm (length x width).

HIMEJIMA Chikugai, Scroll Painting, Literati Still Life, Taisho

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Hanging scroll painting with fine damask silk mountingJapan, Taisho period (1912-1926)HIMEJIMA Chikugai (1840-1928) – Japanese literati (Nanga) artistDated (1916) and with sealDepiction of daisies by a scholar’s rockDimensions: 195 x 52 cm Very good condition This Japanese scroll painting from the Taisho period (1912-1926) by the literati artist HIMEJIMA Chikugai (1840-1928) exhibits the bold brushstrokes and lines that are characteristic of the artist’s work. The scholar’s rocks with the daisies are a unique choice, if compared to similar subjects found in Nanga school paintings. The scroll painting is dated to the summer of 1916, when Chikugai was 76 years old. Condition: The scroll painting is in very good condition with minor wear. The mounting with small staining and minor creases. The reverse has a little darkened with time. The dimensions are 195 x 52 cm (length x width). HIMEJIMA Chikugai (1840-1928) Chikugai was trained in painting at a young age by MURATA Toho and Ishimaru Shungyu. He lived during a period when Japan was undergoing great social and cultural changes. The Meiji period saw rapid reform and adaptations of Western ideas, thoughts, and culture while at the same time many of Japan's traditions and ideas were being discarded. Chikugai was one of the artists who felt that his tradition of painting, the Nanga School, needed to be preserved and became an important figure in raising artists who in turn helped to establish the new Shin-Nanga movement, adding Western elements in Japanese painting yet retaining its traditional feel. Chikugai was skilled in painting landscapes and still lifes, frequently employing bold lines and brushstrokes in his paintings.
