Description A Japanese mounted vertical hanging scroll painting by Mori Tetsuzan (Japanese, 1775-1841) circa 19th century Edo period. The watercolor and ink on silk painting depicts a family of three moneys perched on a rock in a floral landscape. The style is extremely realistic and quite stunning visually. Artist's signature "Tetsuzan" in black ink and two chop seal signatures "Tetsuzan" and "Shushin" (the other name of the artist) on the lower right. The silk panel was mounted on paper and bordered in patterned brocade. There is detailed script on verso as shown that appears to be the notion from the collector. When fully extended, it measures about 80 inches high.
Mori Tetsuzan was a painter and print artist living in the Edo period. He was by birth the son of Mori Sosen's brother Shuho (1736-1823), but was adopted by Sosen to carry on his artistic line. He first studied with Shuho and Sosen before apparently becoming a pupil of Maruyama Okyo. His work is considered to be in the Maruyama-Shijo School. Several of his scrolls are in the permanent collection of Metropolitan Museum NYC and The British Museum.
