Landschaft mit Pavillon | Suzuki Kason 鈴木華邨 | 1860-1919

Landscape with pavilion | Suzuki Kason travel guide | 1860-1919

Suzuki Kason belongs to the "lost generation" that was born at the end of the Edo period (1603-1867) but did not properly recognize the signs of the new era, the Meiji period (1868-1912). Kason remained a traditionalist, albeit a very good one, and rarely dared to experiment like his more successful contemporaries.

This wonderful fragment of a folding screen is as masterfully painted as its predecessors since the 16th century. However, it does not have the modern verve of a landscape by Hashimoto Gahō or Kanō Hōgai, among others.

The picture, painted on gilded silk, was mounted on a wooden panel that was reinforced with strong strips and provided with a very narrow black frame. The picture can therefore be fixed flat to a wall like a panel.

Dimensions: 10cm x 117cm | Material: silk painting mounted on wooden panel
