1500: Year of the Dragon (Seikaku)

Three dragons, blue, green, and silver are here to bring good luck and (monetary) fortune. Gold coin already lies stacked on the shore, while the treasure boat brings even more. The image is packed with auspicious symbols: red Mount Fuji in the distance, the Shinto emblems of the torii (ceromonial arch) and two rocks joined by a shimenawa (sacred rope), the traditional pine, plum, and bamboo, and more...

No biographical details, but the artist Mori Seikaku specialises in animal and flower scroll paintings. He signs his work the traditional way, with the characters for his given (brush) name, Seikaku (lit. 'nest of the crane') and a seal of the same.
