SALE, was $5,800 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE AND ENCOURAGING FEEDBACK REGARDING OUR TEMPORARY CLOSING SALE. IN RESPONSE WE PLAN TO EXTEND THE SALE TO THE 15TH OF JANUARY, AT WHICH POINT ZEN-ZEN0.COM WILL OFFICIALLY CLOSE ITS DOORS. SELECTED ITEMS WILL BE EVEN FURTHER DISCOUNTED DURING THIS FINAL PERIOD. In China since ancient times images of fine horses have symbolized military power and authority. Most commonly shown tethered to trees and casually grazing they are thought to intimate times when the empire was at peace. In Japan, horses tethered in stables became a popular motif during the Muromachi era, though perhaps connoting a samurai's pride at his fine team of horses. In this unique Japanese painting a horse is tethered to a blooming cherry tree in full battle regalia, its master noticeably absent. In the empty space a poem has been inscribed which has so far eluded our attempts at translation. Undoubtably it would shed light on the artist's intentions; perhaps referencing the samurai's fleeting life to the blossoms on a cherry tree. Both the painter and the poet/calligrapher remain anonymous. The painting dates to the 17th century. Painted on paper with ink, color and gofun. It is in fair condition. It has undergone many repairs over its lifetime which have basically dealt with paper losses. The work has also been somewhat reduced in size which has interfered with the artist's signature and seal. The mounting is quite new and the work displays well. The image measures 14'' by 20'' (35 by 50 cm). The scroll measures 53.5'' by 25'' (136 by 64 cm).

In Japan sets of screens such as these were traditionally presented as part of the bride's dowry. Although unsigned the artist would have been affiliated with an atelier of the Tosa school. Dating to the second half of the 17th century this small pair of six-fold screens are in reasonable condition and display well. The right screen is actually in good condition with the left having had some fairly rudimentary repairs in the past. They have been painted with ink, pigment and gofun on a ground of gold leaf.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE AND ENCOURAGING FEEDBACK REGARDING OUR TEMPORARY CLOSING SALE.

The dog pictured is a Russian hound or perhaps a saluki. Although by an artist of the Kano school the work shows strong Nagasaki or Nanpin school influences; the prominent foreground positioning of the subject, extreme detail, rich decorative coloring and also the exotic nature of the subject itself. The basis for this style was the particular type of Ming dynasty bird and flower painting brought from China to Japan in the 18th century by Shen Nanpin (Shen Quan). Exotic western animals were first brought to Japan aboard the Portuguese black ships during the 16th century and are commonly depicted in folding screens of the era though far less realistically than in this case. The model for this hound would have been based on a painting or sketch by a Chinese artist brought in to the port of Nagasaki or even a European copperplate engraving and etching. Painted with ink and pigments on silk the work is in good condition. Some pigment losses and small marks are visible. It presents very nicely with Edo period brocade. The image measures 39'' by 14'' (100 by 35 cm). The scroll measures 74'' by 17'' (184 by 44 cm). Yamada Dosetsu (fl. 1830-1844). The signature reads Dosetsu Yoshitatsu. Dosetsu's real name is Yoshitatsu Dosetsu. He lived in Edo and was a student of Kano Torin Yoshinobu (1781-1820). Torin headed the Saruyamachi branch of the Kano school.

A Maruyama-Shijo painter Yamaguchi Soken has brushed a pair of bats in front of a crescent moon. The bat is a sign of good luck as its name in Chinese is homophonous with fortune. Bats are commonly paired with images of the moon, the essence of the female yin. For examples of the subject brushed in ink by other artists of the Maruyama-Shijo school see A Brush with Animals - Japanese Paintings 1700-1950, published in 2008. Painted with ink on paper the work is in good condition. There are a couple of re-backed insect holes. The work displays well, it was re-mounted perhaps mid 20th century. Light creasing is present in the painting. The image measures 11'' by 18.5'' (28 by 47 cm). The scroll measures 46'' by 23'' (116 by 59 cm). Yamaguchi Soken (1759-1818) is regarded as one of Maruyama Okyo's ten best pupils. A member of the Maruyama-Shijo school in Kyoto he first studied with his father Yamaguchi Sogaku. He is particularly well known for his ukiyo-e paintings and illustrated printed books. Bird and flower paintings and landscapes were also prominent within his oeuvre.
