Niimi Torii And Stone Lanterns in Autumn Watercolor
Click on image above for more views

.

This is a very nice and peaceful watercolor by S. Niimi. The scene shows a river and the approach to a village with two large stone lanterns and a Torii. The road is lined with trees showing autumnal colors and a person can be seen walking along the road. This is a very well executed and pleasing original watercolor measuring 20 1/8" by 13 5/16" with about a 3/8" margin all of the way around. The piece is done on a heavy paper, is not backed, and is.in quite nice condition. There is some paper adhered to areas of the front margin and a pencil mark that you may be able to see in the top left corner and there is only very minimal toning or fading. The back has some penciling, both in English and Japanese, a very small black rubber-stamped 'Made in Japan', part of an old sticker and 2 remnants of archival tape at the top edge. A charming work to enhance any room ...... SOLD
