Spring Farming Scene

Katsushika Isai Japanese

Edo period (1615–1868)

Not on view

Because of the poor condition of this fan—the edges frayed and the ivory ribs broken into pieces—the paintings on the two sides were recently separated, trimmed, and remounted as two hanging scrolls. Although neither signature nor seal is found on them, the paintings are unmistakably by Isai, the artist of the fan Winter Farming Scene.
