IN THE NEW YEAR WE WILL RETURN AFTER A REDEVELOPMENT OF OUR ONLINE PRESENCE AND OPERATING AS KRISTAN HAUGE JAPANESE ART. Drunken Li Po by a huge vat of wine by Mikama Kakujo (1664-1757). The poetic inscription reads, ''Wasting away, but being (drunk) is my nature - How sad!'' Li Po, one of the greatest of Chinese poets, was known as the ''Wine Immortal.'' It is said that, ''Li Po gets a hundred poems out of one gallon of wine.'' A poem of his begins: 'Life in this world is a big dream; No need to waste time working or worrying. It is best to be drunk all day.' Although Kakujo's haiku seems to portray the poet as a pitiful drunk, that is one thing that Li Po was not. He was always ''gloriously intoxicated.'' It seems that Kakujo is suggesting, tongue firmly in cheek, that we should follow our true nature wherever it leads us. Painted on paper with ink the work is in fair condition. It has been recently restored and remounted. The work presents nicely although it has had a hard life. Numerous losses have been replaced. The image measures 36'' by 14'' (93 by 37 cm). The scroll measures 68'' by 19'' (173 by 48 cm). Mikama Kakujo (1664-1747) was the adopted son of Mikama Senna, one of Matsuo Bashoĺs main disciples so Kakujo is considered a grandchild student of the master. Like Senna, Kakujo was a Pure Land Buddhist priest and very well known for his Haiga paintings.

IN THE NEW YEAR WE WILL RETURN AFTER A REDEVELOPMENT OF OUR ONLINE PRESENCE AND OPERATING AS KRISTAN HAUGE JAPANESE ART. An earlier 19th century work by the Maruyama-shijo school painter Matsumura Keibun (1779-1843). Frogs are a somewhat rare yet traditional subject matter in Japanese art. Haiku and waka poets since the Heian period have referred to the frog and it is usually accompanied by a rain shower, as is the case in this painting by Keibun. Painted on paper with ink and touches of color the work is in reasonable condition. Some light marks and earlier restorations are visible. The image measures 11.5'' by 23'' (29 by 58 cm). The scroll measures 48'' by 28'' (122 by 72 cm). Matsumura Keibun (1779-1843). Keibun was a Maruyama-shij˘ painter who lived in Kyoto. He studied with his elder brother Matsumura Goshun (1752-1811) as well as Maruyama ďkyo (1733-1795). He served as attendant to Prince Shinnin, who had taken Buddhist vows, and lived at the My˘h˘-in, Kyoto, which today still owns many of his paintings. From 1818 until his death, he was one of Kyotoĺs leading artists, and secured the position of the Shij˘ school. He was particularly noted for his bird-and-flower paintings, which were typically drawn from nature. Indeed, he was an avid chronicler of floral and fauna. Within each of his paintings, beneath the strong Maruyama-shij˘ aesthetic, there is a distinct sense of individuality.
