Ichi no Otaki Waterfall Sansui ga 'fishing
for Unagi on a summer evening'
A emotive and well detailed scene by scroll artist Kouzan painted late
20th century. Capturing the waterfall Ichi No Otaki (also see Ichi No
Otaki Scroll below) in the distance on a late Summer evening with the
lamps of the hut glowing and the reflection of the moonlight in the
great waterfall up in the mountains. This reminded me of Angel Falls.
Fishermen catching eels, Unagi, in the river at night, the best time
for this delicacy. It's a Japanese custom to eat Unagi on "doyo no
ushinohi" in the summer. Including Box, . Its is very nice

He studied under Yamamoto Shunkyo.
Yamamoto Shunkyo 1871-1933Born in Shiga-ken and lived in Kyoto.
Pupil of Kono Barei.Nomura Bunkyo and Mori Kansai. Professor at the
Kyoto College of Fine Arts and exhibitor with the Buntsen. One of the
founders of the modern Kyoto School; a great figure in Kyoto art
circles. Member of the Imperial Art Committee and of the Teikoku
Bijutsuin. His style at first was that of the Shijo school but became
more eclectic, painting landscapes with considerable western influences
hence the work of his students would sometimes reflect that as in this
scroll by Tosen. Shunkyo's subjects included Buddhist themes.
Collections are in the Kyoto Museums,. Tokyo Museum etc.

Koyama (Yamamoto) Ryudo: Farmhouse in the Mountains
(1844-1913) Born in Shinshu Iida clan (Now Nagano) as the clan's
educator, Fujii Tenryu. Learns Tosa style from Yamamoto Gyoou, and
Late Northern style and conducting research on the Southern style.
He was very skilled in Bird and flower themes and Buddhist subjects.
Although he he specialised in Buddhist art and kacho-ga he was not
successful as a Japanese painter and he left Tokyo to return to his
home in Nagano.
It is in Nagano that he did this style of painting to make ends
meet. In this painting the house is covered in deep snow with the
bamboo bent with the weight of the snow, almost ready
to break. There is a haystack in the front with a few sparrows
searching for some food in this very cold winter. I wonder if he was
referring to his own situation when he composed this beautiful
painting Quite a memorable rendition and a story that is very
poignant as he passed away a little after painting this scroll of
what is probably his family farm during the very cold mountain winter of 1912.

found here in this truly inland prefecture which is the furthest point
of any prefecture from the ocean. Japan hosted the Winter Olympics here.
