Fine Edo Period Nonaka Estate Hawk Painting by Kazusada
Sold Thank You. Prospect Heights, IL

Hawks have been the prime preference for the ruling samurai class since the feudal system came into being in the 13th century. This work by an artist named Kazusada who served the Hosokawa Clan as their court painter. Kazusada was living during the Bunka-Bunsei era (1790-1830) and the work was formerly part of the Nonaka Estate.

The work uses a style of brushwork often seen in the works of Ito Jakuchu where the artist skillfully uses water and ink to depict the feathers of the bird. Additionally the realism expressed with the hawk is awe inspiring as if the bird will jump on its prey at any time.

Age: 1790-1850 Edo Period. Size: 49.5 x 24.6
