Description

This Japanese painting (nihonga) dates from the early to mid Japanese Showa period (1926-1989) and features a landscape scene with calligraphy at the upper right corner.  The painting depicts travelers walking within a steep canyon with a narrow waterfall in the background.  The painting was done on a rectangular sheet of stiff Japanese shikishi paper with gold trim at the edges.  This nihonga painting is in fair condition with some marks, stains and creases and is a wonderful candidate for framing and display.
