Original Nara-e fan painting, artist unknown
Ink and pigments on paper with gilding, ca. early 1600s

Originally mounted as a fan and later remounted on a fusuma sliding door or folding screen. Probably produced in a Kyoto fan workshop by one of a number of Nara ehon picture book painters that migrated to Kyoto from Nara.

Condition is good considering age and original use as a fan, some surface wear to pigments, slight smudging, losses to gilding, light creases and wrinkles, old backing from door or screen mounting remains

Overall size: 8 x 20 in. (max. length)
