Saturday, 4 April 2009 Japanese Scroll, Samurai Retainer in a Raincoat by a cherry tree. Signed and sealed: Shotei. Color on silk, silk mount, wood rollers. Condition is poor. no tears or holes, however, staining throughout. needs a good restorative clean. 78 x 21" mount. add 2" for rollers. Very dramatic image of retainer reaching for his tanto, very like Meiji period imagery utilizing a historical romatisization of the dissapearing samurai world. Could be painting by "Takahashi Shotei" although I'm not an expert. Dear Ross, I am sure this scroll was drawn by Takahashi Shotei. As far as I checked the depicted red seals at image No. 3/8, I might read as follows: Upper seal: ”高”(sure) ”色→(橋)?” ”(弘)?” ”明”(sure) Lower: ”松” for right part and ”亭” for left part. You should buy this scroll as long as its price is low and resonable. Best regrad, Tosh
