This Japanese painting (nihonga) dates from the mid Japanese Showa period (1926-1989) and depicts a lone crane standing beside a body of water. Japanese writing, possibly a poem and the signature of the artist, are seen next to the figure. 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 to fair condition with marks, stains and creases and is a wonderful candidate for framing and display.
