|A pair of tigers playfully fighting under a pine tree by the mid 19th century Kishi school artist Naito Hogaku. The scene is painted with ink on silk. The brocade is original although the scroll has been re-mounted once and the brocade retained. Three spots are visible on the painting, otherwise it is in very good condition. The large image measures 49'' by 28'' (125 by 72 cm). The scroll measures 82'' by 34'' (208 by 86 cm). It is the work of Naito Hogaku (Hougaku), a Kishi school artist who flourished in the Ansei era (1854-1860). He studied in Kyoto under Kishi Ganku. He is from Yamaguchi prefecture, specifically an area named Yoshiki. He painted the dragon on the ceiling of a shrine named Akada jinja, which is in Yoshiki.|
