Footnotes

  • Provenance: ex-Motoyama Chikuso collection

    The box inscriptions accompanying this painting attest to the authenticity of this work. The earlier, written by Nagao Kayo, a pupil of Tsubaki Chinzan (1801-1854), praises this painting, pointing out that it is exhibits ki'in (Ch. qiyun), the first of the six laws of painting associated with Tang dynasty masters. The later inscription by Yamanaka Rankei, a scholar familiar with the work of Ike Taiga, discusses at length this painting suggesting Taiga has drawn on the works of Wang Wei (699-759) and Mi Youren (1075-1151).
