Description

We estimate this scroll was painted over 60 years ago.
It is slightly foxed overall as it was painted years ago.
Unfortunately, several holes are found at the top of mounting.
There are spots, stains and faint creases in whole.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is not good.
The painting subject is well-known one.
Kusunoki Masashige (1294-1336), famous Samurai commander, was going to the Minatogawa War by order of the Godaigo Emperor.
He knew he would lose the war and also his life.
At Sakurai post town, Masashige told his young son Masayuki to go to Kawachi Province (Masashige's hometown).
Masayuki denied to go there and wanted to accompany with his father.
Masashige admonished his son that he should survive for revenge.
Then, the father and child parted tearfully.
The scene is painted elaborately and artistically.
