Antique Japanese Shikishi Art – Landscape Nihonga

Antique Japanese Shikishi Art – Landscape Nihonga
This Japanese painting (nihonga) dates from the early to mid Japanese Showa period (1926-1989) and features the image of what may be a temple building facing trees in bloom amidst a beautiful landscape. This painting appears reminiscent of Chinese styles which have long been popular in Japan. The painting was done on a rectangular sheet of stiff Japanese shikishi paper with gold trim at the edges. This nihonga painting is in poor condition with some marks, stains and creases and damaged areas around the edges and is a wonderful candidate for framing and display.
