An extremely interesting fan painting with a brush drawing of a turtle by Hokuba and a kyoka poem by Bakin – a leading writer of popular fiction in the late Edo period. The Kyoka poem mentions mud-turtles and the use of tortoiseshell, together with the mention of the sun and the “spring of the reign of the Emperor”. (There may be an anti-Edo Government, pro-Emperor agenda here.) Fan laid onto Japanese paper. In good condition for a used fan. Signed Hokuba ga and Kyokutei Bakin. Status: Available
