Tiger Drinking from a Raging River  1640

by Kanō Sansetsu

Created in the Kanei period (1624–44), Tiger Drinking from a Raging River is the only signed screen painting by the celebrated artist Kano Sansetsu (1590–1651) to ever leave Japan. The most original Japanese artist of the seventeenth century, Sansetsu is often favorably compared to the eighteenth-century painter Ito Jakuchu, who is well represented in American collections....
