Description

This Japanese painting (nihonga) dates from the early to mid Japanese Showa period (1926-1989) and features a pair of sumo wrestlers.  Brush-applied calligraphy appears at the upper left corner and at the back of the art.  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 holes, marks, stains and creases and is a wonderful candidate for framing and display.
