Description

The scroll is foxed overall as it was painted years ago.
Unfortunately, there are noticeable spots and stains on the painting part.
There are also a little noticeable stains at the bottom part of the mounting.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is so-so.
Although, it was painted very well.
This is famous scene of Chinese history ( Of course, the painter is Japanese ).
Kanshin was genius general of the Han dynasty.
Though, the king looked suspiciously at him.
Kanshin had to run away from pursuers.
Once, the officer of barrier doubted him and asked him to go under the officer's legs.
The officer thought that if this man was really Kanshin, he would never go under legs because of his pride.
Kanshin went under the officer's legs.
Finally, the officer admitted Kanshin to pass the barrier.
That scene was express very well on this painting.

Price Sold, Thank you !
