(See two other works by the artist in my shop)**Nicely executed watercolor painting of traditional Japanese scene in the autumn season, measuring 12 1/4" by 8 3/4", unframed, signed at lower left by the talented listed Japanese artist FUKUTARO TERAUCHI (1891-). Terauchi was born December 9,1891. In 1910 he entered the private school Kiyoteru Kuroda, and later became a member of the Hakuda Association. His name is often misread as Tanauchi or Tarauchi, and his body of work is confused with that of the better known Manjiro Terauchi, by collectors and auction houses alike. What is known is that he was prolific, steady in quality, and working most likely after the war. I have seen online a 1975 death date but cannot confirm this. Some have speculated that the works were produced for tourists. Tourist work or not there is no denying the decorative appeal and the quality of the art. Condition is very good, with some mat browning at extreme edges.
