Provenance: From the collection of Felix Tikotin, and thence by descent within the family. Felix Tikotin (1893-1986) was an architect, art collector, and founder of the first Museum of Japanese Art in the Middle East. Born in Glogau, Germany, to a Jewish family, his ancestors had returned with Napoleon from Russia from a town named Tykocin. He grew up in Dresden and after World War I, he traveled to Japan and immediately fell in love with the culture. In April 1927, he opened his first own gallery in Berlin. The entire family survived the Holocaust, and in the 1950s Tikotin slowly resumed his activities as a dealer in Japanese art. He became, once again, very successful and prominent, holding exhibitions all over Europe and the United States. When he first visited Israel in 1956, he decided that the major part of his collection belonged in that country. In 1960, the Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art was opened in Haifa.

He was born in Omi province to Kaiho Tsunachika, who was a vassal of Azai Nagamasa. At an early age he became a page at the Tofuku-ji in Kyoto and later a lay priest. He served there under the abbot and associated with the leading Zen priests of Kyoto. In his forties, Yusho turned to painting and became a pupil in the Kano School, either under the famous Kano Motonobu or his grandson Kano Eitoku. He then worked at Jurakudai, under the patronage of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the Emperor Go-Yozei. At first, he patterned his work after Song painter Liang Kai, producing only monochrome ink paintings, using a ‘reduced brush stroke,’ relying more on ink washes than sharp hard strokes. Later, he worked with fashionable rich colors and gold leaf. Artistically on a level with Hasegawa Tohaku and Kano Eitoku, he gave his name Kaiho to the style of painting he and his followers practiced. Kaku Shigi or Guo Ziyi (697-781) was a Tang dynasty general, known for his military conquests and progeny. He rose to fame when he led the Chinese army on several central Asian campaigns and then crushed the An Lushan rebellion of 755-63. Guo's eight sons and seven daughters produced so many grandchildren that, reportedly, he could not remember all their names. He became a symbol of longevity, wealth, and fatherhood in China and was popular with Japanese merchants of the Edo period.
