Details

A Calligraphy attributed to Kameda Bosai (亀田鵬斎, 1752–1826). Bosai was a Japanese literati painter, originally trained as a Confucian scholar, but possibly best known for his distinctive drunken calligraphic script. The inscription is a poem written by Sanjo Nishijo (1455-1537) a Muromachi period author and minister.  The poem expresses Sanjo’s exhaustion with his government work and wish to retire. He was inspired and refers to Fan Li (536 BC-448 BC) a noted Chinese minister and leader who trying to retire and escape court politics became a hermit living on a boat on Lake Tai. With accompanying tomobako box. With creases to calligraphy and slight damage to mount
Edo Period (1600-1868)
