SKU: 2567

A flower painting on a fan by Tani Buncho (1763-1841). In the year 1899 Tanomura Chokunyu (1814-1907) had this fan painting mounted on a scroll and extended Buncho's piece to a composition of vegetable and butterflies and he adds "Chokunyu is happy to start new things with 86 years.


A very interesting and attractive collaborative work. Besides from that there is an inscription on the box by Tanomura Shoko (1879-1910), Chokunyu's granson. - Inscription on the box lid reads: "My grandfather Master Chokunyu, collaborative homage for Buncho. Vegetables and butterflies", and on the inside: "In the spring of 1908 I honourably viewed the painting and gave the title at Higashiyama Gashindo. Humble grandson, hermit Shoko."
