Estate of Janet G. Moore
This small album contains twelve paintings of landscapes alternating with sheets of decorated paper that may have been intended for inscribing poems. The artist has painted in a style learned from his father Nakabayashi Chikuto and from Yamamoto Baiitsu, the leading artists of their time in the Nanga school of painters. Nanga artists followed Chinese techniques and subjects. In this painting titled Summer Mountains Wanting Rain, the artist has painted an expressive landscape without reference to a specific place, using a rapid brush technique combining wet and dry brushstrokes.
