Kano on Edo Straw India tea paper

Matsushima Waves

Kano on Edo Straw India tea paper


The provenance of the design is a pair of folding screens by Sotatsu, one of the most talented and innovative artists of the Edo Period who headed a painting workshop during the 17th Century known as Tawaraya. The original paintings, amoang only six surviving sets by Sotatsu depict Matsushima (Pine Islands), a famous site near Sendai in northeastern Japan whose beauty inspired both poets and painters. In this design, animated waves envelop graphic rocks that protrude from the fluid landscape.
