Mitsusada, Fujiwara 光貞 藤原 (1738 - 1806)

Moon and bat

Signed:Tosa Fujiwara Mitsusada, Head of the Painting Bureau, Upper 4th Rank
Sealed:Mitsusada no in
Date:ca. 1805
Size:133.5 x 66.8 cms (mounting)
38.3 x 55.7 cms (painting)

53 x 26 inch (mounting)
15 x 22 inch (painting)
Technique:sumi and colours on silk
Condition:ChŻberi (middle part) of light brown silk brocade, top and bottom of pale blue silk. Dark-brown ichimonji and futai, black lacquer rollers. Titled, inscribed and dated wooden box: the box has suffered woodworm damage; it is dated Bunka 10 (1813), and is the oldest original box I have ever had.
Probably the original mounting (again a very rare phenomenon), which is a bit brittle, but still serviceable. In spite of light mottling the painting is in overall good condition.
Price:SOLD Euro

Literature:Roberts p. 109
The signature and seal correspond to that on a painting of two quails in The British Museum. Also the signatures and seals are identical: 畫所預従四位上土佐守藤原光貞 - Edokoro-azukari juyon'i [no] jo Tosa-no-kami Fujiwara Mitsusada.
