Two Hanging Scrolls "Cranes", signed Kaan Busei, Japan, 1850.
Signed mentioning "painted at age of 74".

Kita Busei (one of his go-names: Kaan Busei)
Born: 1776
Died: 1857
Japanese: 喜多 武清 (Kita Busei)
Kita Busei was an Edo-period painter known for his birds and flowers paintings. Student of Tani Buncho.

Scroll 1: Crane
Scroll 2: Crane with young bird.

Both scrolls:
Hand-painted on paper.
Roller-ends: wood.
Scroll: 39x 182cm.
Roller-ends: 43cm.
Painting: 28.5x 97.5cm.
Silk mounting grey-blue.

The paintings have been re-mounted in the past. The thin paper of the painting has some thin areas and some paper-loss (mainly in the upper part of scroll 2), but this is perfectly restored with the re-mounting.

Last picture: reference of signature ("painted at age of 63"), as sold by Bonhams Auctioneers.

Photographed against a white wall.
Will be sent well protected, fully insured.
