Fukuda Kodojin Landscape nanga painting

Fukuda Kodojin | Landscape painting


A beautiful example of an album leaf (here mounted on a hanging scroll) painted by Kodojin. Albums in the shape of folded books with paintings on its pages originated in Ming-Dynasty China. In Japan they became a popular format during the Edo period. The generic term is Gajo. In most cases painted album leaves were gifts offered to friends or patrons. 


Flowing waters leave no trace - 
Flowers and clouds have their own mind.
