Label copy
Albums were a popular format among literati artists for exchanging paintings among themselves. A single artist might do a series of paintings as an album, but more often the works of several artists would be bound together in a collaborative product. The paintings may have been done as part of a convivial gathering or assembled from works that the collector requested from his friends. These are two leaves from a single album, despite their different size.
Hine Taizan we have already encountered at left. Fujimoto Tesseki was a samurai from Bizen (modern Okayama, in western Japan), who left official service to wander throughout the country. An intent student of native learning as well as Chinese studies, Tesseki became an ardent supporter of the “revere the emperor” movement that rose in rebellion against the Tokugawa shogunate. He died in battle at the age of thirty-eight.
