From 1906 to 1919
Charles Lang Freer (1854-1919), purchased from S. Ikeda in 1906 
Freer Gallery of Art, gift of Charles Lang Freer in 1920 
 See Original Kakemono List, L. 528, pg. 145, Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives. According to Curatorial Remark 4, in the object record, this object was reproduced in "Catalogue of the Ikeda Collection of Kakemonos and Screens," Kyoto (1906), no. 24, no. 101 in text.
 See note 1. It is probable that S. Ikeda refers to Ikeda Sei’emon (or Seisuke II), the eldest son of the well-known Japanese dealer and collector Ikeda Seisuke (1839-1900). Ikeda Sei’emon maintained shops in Tokyo and Kyoto under the trade name S. Ikeda & Co. After the death of his father, Ikeda Sei’emon sold a number of objects from his father's collection (Ikeda Collection).
 See notes 1 and 2.
 The original deed of Charles Lang Freer's gift was signed in 1906. The collection was received in 1920 upon the completion of the Freer Gallery.
