Resshi (Chinese: Liezi), the legendary Daoist sage, rejected all worldly ties and flew away with the wind. Here, he disappears from the eyes of onlookers into the darkened sky. Modal albums and series of fan paintings were a common means by which Kano-school painters displayed and transmitted their knowledge of Song- and Yuan dynasty Chinese painting styles. The faint jar-shaped seal in the left-hand corner matches one identified as that of Kano Yukinobu.
Signature: Artist's seal
