Mountain Sansui Ga `28.1x48 superb landscape with excellent mounts and with box £185. Clearly mounted by the artist this is a great inkl landscape full of interest
Pines by a River. A delicate Sansui Ga-Landscape with a small boat jetty in amongst the reeds. Snow capped mountains in the background lend the scene a late winter or early spring feeling with ice at the edges of the water and the blue of the cold water coming through in the middle of the river. A very peaceful scene .
Including box : £185
3.Bamboo: Signature says Shouzan, seal says Shun, other seals: round one is :Suiu-ken, the square near the calligraphy, if the seal is upside down, it seems like it says kougen.The calligraphy, Bimi Ryuson is a strange expression. Bimi means delicious as in a meal or a food. Ryuson is the descendant of the dragon, so I am assuming the artist is referring to bamboo shoots.

Waka: Poem title:
Title is: Keeping Cormorants
The future is dark
is what I believe
The burning flames of the fire lit
on the boat to lure the fish
doing cormorant fishing.
The poem is a metaphor for: '
Even though the way ahead is dark
there is a light to guide our way'
Signature: Ai-ai Seal: Seikou
A little note, kana has its styles and forms when
writing it so the poem is an approximate translation
more like extracting the feeling of what I feel it says.

19: Ren Yi, who was called Bonian -Qing Dynasty(1840-1895), is rightly considered as one of the most important painters in late nineteenth century Shanghai.. Ren Yi (Ren Bonian) (Chinese, 1840–1896). Shanghai’s location in China’s first phase of modernity and, secondly, the city’s transformation by social change and cultural pluralism is shown by the paintings of Ren Bonian as a key example of that modernistic change in traditional Chinese Art.
