'Rain Shower'

This lovely oil on canvas painting depicts a Courtesan and other travelers caught in a rain shower. They have taken shelter under their rain umbrellas in what appears to be a shopping district. There is a tea house on the corner, with flags billowing in the rain and a large lantern hanging above. This painting has wonderful impressionistic qualities and is well executed. It measures 9.5" h by 13" across, the wood frame measures 15" high by 18.5" across. It is signed 'Hisao', a Japanese surname, which represents 'The Story of Life', in the lower left corner. We have not been able to identify the artist, so it shall remain a mystery for now. It likely dates to c1920 given its original Japanese frame, which has held up quite well over the past 100 or so years. This oil painting is in original condition, no apologies.        P18812            $495.00
