Peaceful Village, Vintage Japanese Painted Paper Panel, Mid-Twentieth Century. Large, with Vintage Frame. Zen art.

By unidentified

no place: unknown, 1935 Fine vintage painting in Very Good vintage frame. Large; outside frame dimensions are 36" x 30". See scanned images. The painting has been identified as a likely early-to-mid-twentieth century Japanese Painted Paper Panel; it is executed on an Old Gold-hued material with a silk-like appearance (though it is probably a type of paper), impregnated with occasional gold glitter flecks. The border is Old Gold color silk brocade. Subject is a peaceful rural village, and it's one which has a remarkably tranquilizing effect when it is studied in solitude; hence, may have been executed in a Zen spirit. The combination of that spirit with an oddly gold-luminous appearance in certain lighting from certain angles, and its large size, yields a rather unique experience for the viewer, at times. It hangs here now, in my residence, by itself. The artist is as yet unidentified, but there is a signature, along with a Han character, at the lower left, beneath the tree trunk (see scans). The frame seems to have an early twentieth century aspect; that frame is in just Very Good condition, with occasional small areas of spiderweb cracking, and its original reverse-side brown-papering having been mostly removed, leaving just peripheral fragments there. Overall a piece which is remarkable in its unique "feel". Please see scans. Lartclst-wl
