There are several paintings in existence with the seal “Shuho” and painting styles similar to this work, but their artist is unknown. Although their dynamic and undulating construction and the rendering of stooped figures resemble the style of Sesson, a painter from the Kanto region who was active in the 16th century, no evidence that Sesson used “Shuho” as his professional name. Seven scenes from the Chinese theme [Eight Scenes of Xiao and Xiang] can be found in this painting. (130625_h033)(170102_h033数文字変更)
