6-Panel Evening Landscape by Ishu (14634)

19th century 6-panel screen with the image of aristrocratic ladies in an evening landscape, painted by Ishu. The scene is painted in a quiet atmospheric style. The vague definitions of temples and buildings shrouded in mists makes one think of poetic passages that evoke emotions from an imagined reality.

Kano painter Ishu (1791-1852) was born in Sendai, and is said to have been a descendant of Ogawa Ritsuo. He studied with Kano Isen’in, and was influenced by his friend TaniBuncho. Ishu served as official painter to the daimyo of Sendai, but also led a Bohemian life sketching as he wandered. He was skilled in representing Kannon and in suiboku painting. He created his own style.
