京都市は東山区のお宅にて掛軸を買い取らせていただきました。

作者の南義信(1934年~)は奈良県出身の日本画家です。

第一級の日本画家であり文化勲章受章者でもある堂本印象(1891~1975)に師事した南は、活動拠点を置く関西を中心に関展賞・京展賞といった実績はもちろんのこと、日展での多数の入選実績を得る実力が評価されています。

「渓山清流之図」と題されたこちらの山水画は、床の間に安らかな静寂と奥行きを沿える味わい深い一幅です。

We visited Higashiyama district of Kyoto City and purchased the Kakejiku (掛軸 Hanging scroll).

Kakejiku is one of the many traditional ways to display and exhibit East Asian painting and calligraphy.

The artist, Yoshinobu Minami (南義信 1934~), is born in Nara prefecture. He studied Nihonga (日本画 Japanese painting) under the great Inshō Dōmoto (堂本印象 1891~1975) who is one of the most respected Nihonga artist in Japan and a recipient of the Order of Culture (文化勲章) in 1961.

Minami’s works have been appreciated by the critics as well as the public, having many of his works selected for Nitten Exhibitions (the biggest domestic exhibitions) over the decades.
