Poem On Kozuka Signed Masayuki

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Can someone translate the poem which is back the Kozuka?

 

It is signed Masayuki. Is it Gimei ?

 

Topic is Jurojin with his scroll, crane and tortoise.

 

Thank your for your help.

 

Bruno

Masayuki = alternately read 'Shozui'.

Shozui being the founder of the Hamano School.

 

Shozui..... was a very popular signature to fake. I've even owned a gimei Shozui f/k knowing it was such, because it was exceptional work where someone later added a 'Shozui' signature, since it was Hamano style.

It was gimei, but a pleasure to own for a while and then sold as 'gimei'.

 

Unless this kozuka is another separate Masayuki/Shozui working in a Nara derivative style, this one looks 100% gimei.

I don't even need hit the Wakayama. There are certain quirks to the famous Shozui's signature that are missing from this example.

 

I suck at poetry. One of the pros will need translate the poem.

Bruno,

 

The inscription is not a poem.

The inscription says "Copied from a picture(or a work) by Toshinaka/Toshinaga".

Morita San and Curran,

 

Thank you so much for the information. Obviously Shozui/Masayuki being a "big name" I had no doubt on the potential gimei.

 

I'll try to find the paint/scroll  from Toshinaka which has inspired this kozuka design.

 

Thank you again

 

Bruno
