Early 1900s Japanese Woodblock on mulberry, Rooster & Hen by BIHO Takahashi

This gorgeous Japanese watercolor/woodblock features a rooster and a chicken and was painted on washi mulberry paper. The paper has darkened a lot with age but the colors are still quite vibrant. Roosters are an important cultural symbol, a sacred animal in Japan.

Age: The signature is a Japanese stamp or chop signature; the artist is Biho Takahashi. The art dealer's sticker on the back of the framing indicates it was sold in Copenhagen, Denmark by Vilhelm Tryde, Ove Tryde, Kunsthandel, a venue that closed in 1938. The artist would have created this piece between 1900 and 1925.

This is a shikishiban, approximately 10" square. The frame is not in very good condition, one side is loose and it has been taped up more than once.

This is a lovely, original piece of art by Japanese artist Biho Takahasi from the early 1900s.
