Awabes Diver Original Painting on Scroll

Comments - Lovely modern painting on silk reproducing Utamaro's famous design of awabe or abalone divers at the shore. One beauty wrings out the red wrap around her waist, a knife caught between her teeth as her companion holds out a shell. Beautifully painted and detailed, with an attractive modern scroll mounting. A great decorative item that would make a handsome display. Please note that this is not an original work by Utamaro.

This presentation- The scroll comes in a beautiful, handmade custom wooden storage box. Mounted to a scroll, the painting has gold brocade bands at top and bottom, surrounded by a blue floral print fabric, with pale sage green fabric above and below. The bottom roller has wood knobs, with a hanging bar and braided cord at top.

Artist - Shin-hanga & Modern artist (after Utamaro)

Size - Painting 40 3/4" x 12 3/4"; scroll 76" x 17"; box 22" x 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Condition - Painting has toning and spotting, a few small losses to fabric. Please see photos for details.
