Hasegawa Tôhaku (1539~1610)Hasegawa Tôhaku (1539~1610)

Four-panel screen paintings with landscape, handed down in the Sangen-in temple,ex-collection of the Raku family
These four ink and wash panel screen paintings used to be located in the abbot chamber of the Sangen-in of the Daitokuji temple. They came to the Raku family when the abolition of Buddhism became in full act in the beginning of the Meiji period. The natural landscape is represented by light and dark tones of ink and wash applied spontaneously in brush. It could be considered as a prototype of his “Pine Trees” (National Treasure) in the collection of the Tokyo National Museum.
