  • 鐔 群馬 銘「舊廣(花押)」 19世紀

    Provenance: Roland Hartman collection, purchased at Christie's London, 1976.

    In the catalogue of the above collection, the signature was read as Motohiro, although the first kanji is more likely to be read as Hisa or Kyu. The school is uncertain, though the work shows affinities with that of the Ishiguro group.
