This Japanese painting (nihonga) dates from the early to mid Japanese Showa period (1926-1989) and features the image of a nighttime seen of a small village under a half moon and calligraphy. 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 is a wonderful candidate for framing and display. There is also damage and missing paper at one corner which is significant and visible and noted in the detail photos below.
