attributed to Kakunen Tsuruoka


Mount Fuji

ink and color on paper; oval Tsuruoka family seal on verso, n.d., ca. 1930s

15 by 21 7/8 in., 38 by 55.5 cm

Although this painting is not signed, it was included among a portfolio of watercolors by the artist which remained in the care of the Tsuruoka family by descent. Kakunen never dated his paintings of Japanese subjects, the style of his signature on this watercolor (when compared to his dated woodblock prints) suggests that was likely produced in the 1930s.
