Crane Painting Taking Flight by Nobukazu (1874 - 1944)

Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Crane Painting Taking Flight

Comments - Intriguing scene of an upper-class Heian era family on a verandah, astounded as they watch a painting of a crane that the beauty has just created take flight and fly through the sky at left. The two girls gesture excitedly at the sight, while the beauty smiles, the paintbrush still in her hand and paints and tools scattered about the floor. The beauty wears an elegant outer kimono which trails onto the floor beside her, her long flowing black hair reaching to the hem of the robe. The nobleman wears an intricately patterned blue robe and a tall black court cap. A cherry tree blooms outside, nicely framing a fine view of a lovely lake and garden. Fantastic detail in this colorful and beautifully drawn triptych.

Artist - Nobukazu (1874 - 1944)
Image Size - 27 3/4" x 14"
Condition - With excellent color and detail. Some rubbing and soiling at edges. Some light offsetting in subject. Center panel with a vertical center fold, now flattened. Please see photos for details. Very nice overall.
