A Set of Four Japanese Seasonal Scrolls - Mochizuki Gyokkei Signature - Meiji Period
A set of four seasonal scrolls, painted in ink and color on paper, to be displayed by the Japanese in the tokonoma, one at a time,
in accordance with tea ceremony dictates. In the west, however, these painterly images, illustrated by a noted artist of the Mochizuki School, are to be enjoyed together as a set – the warbler on the willow representing spring, the waterfall, summer, the tiger lapping at the water’s edge, autumn and the snow-laden puppy, winter. Mochizuki Gyokkei signature. Each panel; height, 51"; width, 12". Meiji Period.
