Footnotes

  • 象牙彫根付 親子猿 銘「懐玉斎 正次(方印)」 19世紀中期

    Provenance: purchased in London, 1964.

    Published: Katchen, N7, vol.1, p.135, no.K202.

    The parent seated, grooming one of her offspring which crouches over her legs while another sits at her back, holding a branch of peaches and foliage, the ivory typically unstained, the eyes inlaid in amber with dark pupils.

    This is a fine example of Kaigyokusai's later work, generally accepted as being the period when he produced his best work.

    For a somewhat similar example by Kaigyokusai, see Bushell, NHUR, no.74.
