|Medium:||Scroll/Makuri roll - 掛軸ーまくり|
|Format:||Long scroll - 掛軸, 194 x 55cm|
|Condition:||Surprisingly good condition for a scroll of this age. Very minimal soiling in the painted area and silk surround (some spotting at the bottom right corner above the roller). The verso is clean.|

Shodo is widely known for his woodblock print Bijin-ga series "One Hundred Beauties Depicting Modern and Ancient Manners and Customs". It is little known outside of Japan that he was also a prolific scroll painter of landscape scenes. This kacho-e scene, featuring a raven on a branch in autumn, is a very rare and beautiful subject for Shodo.
