The scroll is slightly foxed overall as it was painted years ago.
There are a few spots on the mounting.
There are some faint stains on the painting part.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is not so bad.
A landscape at a seaside in the autumn including sail boats and Matsu Japanese pine tree is painted well.
A Kanji short poem is also drawn at the top.
The poem literally means that "The weather is calm. Sail boats are heading offshore among the sea bluffs."
