Framed Nihonga Paintings

Tateishi Harumi... Karyudo (Hunters, 1939, Painting on paper in mineral pigments mounted as a framed panel, depicting hunters in the snow. Signed on the lower left with a seal form signature by the artist). "...this painting was first exhibited at the 3rd Shin-Bunten in 1939, when it was acquired directly from the artist by the art patron and collector Hosokawa Rikizo. Along with the rest of his painting collection it entered the Meguro Gajoen Museum Collection after the War, from which it was acquired by Kagedo in 2003. It is illustrated in the Nittenshi, volume 13, page 410, number 105, and in Tateishi Harumi Ten, page 38, number 26." From Framed Nihonga Paintings at Kagedo Japanese Art in Seattle, WA.
