A beautiful example of an album leaf (here
mounted on a hanging scroll) painted by
Kodojin. Albums in the shape of folded books
with paintings on its pages originated in Ming-
Dynasty China. In Japan they became a popular
format during the Edo period. The generic term
is Gajo. In most cases painted album leaves
were gifts offered to friends or patrons.

"Flowing water leaves no trace,
Blossoms, like clouds, have their own mind."

Fukuda Kodojin (1865-1944)
