A long “Hengaku” framed painting meant to sit above the transom by Yoshimura Horyu featuring monkeys riding on the back of a deer. One has fallen and is being dragged along like a water-skier by vines tangled in the deers horns. A very humorous scene by this rare Osaka artist. Pigment and ink on silk mounted on gold with a carved rosewood frame. The frame is 154.5 x 50 cm (61 x 20 inches) and is in fine condition, with toning to the silk typical of age.
Yoshimura Horyu (1874-1936) was born in Osaka and studied under Mori Niho (1818-1891), excelling at paintings of animals in the Shijo style of observation from life. Due to size the cost of shipping will be accrued separately.
