1000: Akafuji (Sesson)

A modern painting in the traditional style. The title simply means "red Fuji" - occasionally at dawn in late summer the whole mountain seen from the East can appear red, and this has been taken as a good omen. This picture is full of good-luck symbolism: a pair of faithful cranes augur domestic harmony, and the evergreen pines promise longevity.

The artist is not named, but the painting is signed 'Sesson', and it seems it may be the contemporary painter Noda Sesson. Unfortunately, I have not been able to confirm this. Conventionally, artists are known by their "given names", though the 'son' character in particular clearly indicates this as a "brush name."
