1st Publication: Ink drawing made in 1795 or so
Size: 6" x 4"
Publisher: Hand made (Hanshita-e)
Condition: Some toning, else fine.
Notes: This hand drawing is unsigned but attributed to Hokusai, from the Shunro Period. It comes from the Harari Collection. Although most of the collection was gifted to the Pacific Museum in Pasadena, some other works ended up in the hands of collectors, and are now for sale.
These 5 unsigned works, attributed to Hokusai, were purchased from the estate of Margaret Ann Niedringhaus (Peg Palmer). She founded the Pacific Culture Foundation,(PCF) now called the Pacific Asia Museum, (PAM) in Pasadena, California and served as president from 1970 to 1971.
Exceptional and unique piece, on an extremely thin paper, so thin that you even wonder how it was possible to draw on it without ripping the paper apart.
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
