[KAKEMONO - HANGING SCROLL] Ôta Saburo, artist. PAINTING OF A POTTER AND HER KILN. Hanging scroll, image size 36.8 X 42.1 cm. Original mounting. The painting is sealed by Ôta Saburo (1884-1969), a student of the early western-style oil painter Kuroda Seiki and a master in his own right. Perhaps Ôta's most famous work is the series of images in his Taisho-era 2 volume book, ASA GIRI. In this hanging scroll his rendition of a tile baker and her kiln is lively and colorful. [SJ].
