Antique Japanese Hanging Scroll Modern Girl 1920s Taisho period  (Dealer: hotoke antiques) – Westernized Japanese girl in 1920s so-called “Modern girl” or “Moga” posing in the eastern landscape of seashore as interesting motif and contrast. Also, rare lovely “clumsy” painting for this type (like the taste of folk painting), compared with usual realistic Taisho painting often seen. So, unique. Signed but unidentified. String is missing and substituted to wire as seen. approx. Length 202.5cm (79.72in), Width 72cm (28.34in)
