Description

Elegant painting on silk depicting the snowy peak of Fuji soaring above the clouds. Mount Fuji (富士山) is the highest mountain in Japan and is considered one of the “Three Holy Mountains” (三霊山) of the country, along with Mount Tate (立山) and Mount Haku (白山), and many Japanese consider it a duty to go on a pilgrimage on its slopes at least once in their life.

This shikishi (色紙) was made by Hasegawa Hokurei (長谷川北嶺), an artist born in 1950 in Gifu Prefecture (岐阜県) and specialized in the depiction of landscapes and kacho-ga (花鳥画) images of flowers and birds.

The work, made on a thick cardboard with golden edges, is in very good condition.
