Item:113685955971This painting was one of four purchased at an estate sale. The paintings belonged to an elderly Japanese man and I purchased them from his daughter. The lady told me her father had these paintings for her entire life and that they were painted by Michisei Kono. I have had them for some time and Michisei Kono is easy to find and is known for his ultra realistic self portraits. Several years ago there was a retrospective gallery show for his work held in Tokyo but I have not been able to find a sample of his signature to compare. In his lifetime he was the member of several art movements in Japan and made most of his living doing illustration art for books and magazines. His style included traditional Japanese style art including block prints and realism. The painting in frame is 16 3/4" H x 14 3/8 W x 2 1/4" D and weighs 3 lbs. The actual painting is 9 1/2 x 7 1/2. I always package to insure safe delivery and only ship with tracking and insurance. If you have questions or are seeking an accurate overseas shipping quote please message before bidding.
