- Curator's comments
Not Soga Jasoku; after Sesshu, also possibly after the style of Isshi Kii 一枝希維 (Sesshu's contemporary; see Zenrin Gasan), by a 17th century Kano-school artist (not Unkoku school); authentication by Kano Yasunobu, therefore probably several decades before him. Handscroll in KNM (Nihon no bijutsu, no. 100) also has authentication by Yasunobu, attributing to Sesshu. This latter is not Sesshu, but is probably by a contemporary. (Kawai Masatomo, 8/2008)
'touched with colour.' (unattributed annotation in the specially interleaved Japanese Study Room copy of Anderson 1886)
