Footnotes

  • 鐘馗図 卍桜北鷲筆 一幅 紙本着色 19世紀前期/中期

    Exhibited and published: Itabashi Kuritsu Bijyutsukan, Hokusai and his followers - the collection of the best Ukiyo-e paintings, Exhibition Catalogue, Tokyo, 2008, pl.no.57.

    Hokuga was one of the many pupils and late followers of Hokusai. However the high quality of this painting would strongly suggest that this work is by the more famous Hokuga, who later used the name Hotei Gosei and who specialized in surimono with subjects of bijin and warriors.

    The strong contour lines of the drapes of the robes and the Shoki's pose bear close resemblance to the same subject depicted by his master Hokusai.

    Red ink was used to represent the colour for exorcising evil sprits.
