Antique Japanese scrol painting of a landscape with boat. The water is very still and the moon is high over a mountain in the distance. A flock of geese swoops down from the sky on the right. On the far left, an outcropping of rocks partially obscures some rural houses. A willow tree drapes itself outward over the water. With signed tomobako. Signed Tan'yu and with the seal of his given name Moninobu. Certified by Eitoku, his grandfather. Kano Tan'yu (1602-1674) was one of the foremost painters of the Kano School. Originally named Morinobu, he was the eldest son of Kano Takanobu and grandson of Kano Eitoku. In 1617, Tan'yu was appointed by the Tokugawa shogunate to become the shogunate's first official painter.
