      Uragami Gyokudo (1745-1820) Landscape with Figure

      Est: $15,000 - $25,000

      Landscape with Figure An album leaf mounted as a hanging scroll, ink on paper; entitled Kantei shokushin (Base of a waterfall, gathering firewood), signed Gyokudo, with one seal Gyokudo kinshi (impressed upside down) With two wood storage boxes, one with collector's inscription 10 x 6 7/8in (25.5 x 17.6cm) Footnotes Uragami Gyokudo (1745-1820) is one of the most fascinating artists of the Edo period. Though not a professional painter--he prided himself more on his expertise with the qin (a Chinese zither-like instrument)--his paintings are surprisingly in tune with a twentieth- or twenty-first-century sensibility. Landscapes that turn and twist, mountain peaks that tilt, odd circular "rock"-like forms that both define and defy nature, brushwork not merely descriptive or simply abstract--Gyokudo's landscapes captivate the most jaded modern eye that disparages all but contemporary art. Seemly simple, his execution is extremely sophisticated, recalling the best of Chinese literati painting. The brushwork, the interweaving and overlaying of wet and dry brushstrokes, the use of heavy and light ink, and the sense of abandon despite his total control of the medium, are accompanied by a sensibility that conveys an intensity and monumentality to the smallest of works. All in a state of continual flux, always intriguing, never resting but still a with sense of tranquility, the artistic image of this visionary still resonates without boundaries in today's world. An excellent monograph on this extraordinary artist is presented in James Cahill, Scholar Painters of Japan: The Nanga School, New York, Asia Society, 1972, pp.71-86.

The painting illustrates the Chinese phrase " Tian chang lu yuan," meaning heaven is eternal and the world full of spirits. The phrase, inscribed on the painting, is taken from Nan shi: Sun Shang yun (Southern history: The sayings of Sun Shang). Enclosed by a casually drawn fan shape, the mountain landscape is painted in a dry-brush technique with a crystalline clarity. Delicate vertical striations in the foreground trees add a subtle accent. The painting is thought to date from the last five years of the artist's life. It is closely related in style and date to another masterwork from his final years, Sanko Osen zu (Mountains dyed scarlet) in the Kimura Collection, which is classified as an Important Cultural Property.
