Antique Japanese Mount Fuji Landscape Watercolor Painting. Up for sale is the Japanese watercolor painting of Mount Fuji and a surrounding river on paper, dated late 19. The painting depicts the river with sailboats and rafts, light blue sky with soft, variegated red clouds, and the snow-capped Mount Fuji in the background. The colors of the river matched well with those of the sky. As the sailboats receded in the distance, they became diminished. Along the coast stand the cottages, a shrine-like stone lantern (tr), and maple trees with red leaves, as a fall season scenery. Gilt-Framed and underglass, the paining was signed lower right by the artist Shumin in red. Mount Fuji (3,776.24 m, or 12,389 ft), located 100 kilometers (60 miles) south-west of Tokyo on Honshu, is the highest volcano in Japan. Mount Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan to be frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers. Measures: Frame, 25 long x 18 ½ wide; Painting, 19 x 12. Condition: Good antique condition, with some foxing to paper.
