        † MORI SOSEN (1747-1821): ‘DEER AND MONKEY'

        Est: €1,500 - €3,000

        † MORI SOSEN (1747-1821): ‘DEER AND MONKEY' Japan, c. 1800. Ink and watercolors on paper. Set inside a vintage frame, behind glass. Depicting a mischievous monkey looking up at an abu (horse-fly) while sitting atop a grazing spotted deer. In a quirky mutually beneficial relation common in the wild, the playful monkeys can hitch a ride and the deer are forewarned about possible predators. Inscriptions: To the bottom-right, signed ‘Sosen utsusu’ 狙仙寫 (‘Painted by Sosen’). Two seals, ‘Mori Morikata’ 杜守象 and ‘Sosen’ 狙仙. Provenance: French private collection. Condition: Shows traces of wear, some tears, few water stains, slight browning and fading, and light creasing. The frame with usual wear and traces of use. Dimensions: Image size 99 x 41 cm, Size incl. frame 119 x 59.5 cm Mori Sosen (1747-1821) was a Japanese painter of the Shijō school during the Edo period. Mori Sosen is famous for his many paintings depicting monkeys. He also painted other animals, such as deer, boars, and peafowl. Robert van Gulik called him "an undisputed master" of the painting of the Japanese macaque. When a gibbon was brought in Japan by the Dutch in 1809, creating somewhat of a sensation (gibbons had long been depicted by Japanese artists, based on Chinese paintings of the animal, but no one in Japan had seen a live gibbon for centuries), it was Mori who created a graphic record of this event as well. Expert’s note: Mori Sosen, renowned for his captivating monkey paintings during the Edo period in Japan, displayed remarkable versatility as an artist by also creating compelling depictions of other animals, including deer. While Sosen is predominantly celebrated for his whimsical monkey portrayals, his deer paintings offer a distinct and tranquil counterpoint to his oeuvre. What makes the present lot particularly intriguing is the rare combination of monkey and deer. While he primarily focused on each species separately, this rare juxtaposition offers a glimpse into his versatility as an artist and a unique perspective on the rather amusing interaction of these two animals of the natural world.
