- Curator's comments
- This is from a group of twenty-seven fans dated variously between 1802 and 1841. An inscription on their storage box suggests that they are from a much larger collection of fans made from about 1821 onwards by one Ogawa Sanzaemon Sotoku, in the town of Tsu (in modern Mie Prefecture). The paintings and calligraphies are by many famous artists, poets and calligraphers and would have constituted an elegant autograph collection for the owner. Perhaps some were acquired by him directly from the artists and poets.
