Dear David, Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the images and available information, this item is: A Japanese Scroll painting by Hōsei Harukata. Japanese scroll paintings, often referred to as "kakejiku" (掛け軸) in Japanese, are a traditional form of Japanese art that dates back centuries. These scrolls are a unique and elegant way of displaying paintings or calligraphy, and they are an integral part of Japan's artistic and cultural heritage. Japanese scroll paintings are typically created on long, narrow pieces of silk or paper, which are mounted on horizontal wooden rollers at the top and bottom. Silk was historically the preferred material due to its durability and ability to showcase intricate details, but paper scrolls are also common. Very good condition
