hanging scroll: Portrait of Juttoku
view: front

The scroll is a light to mid brown in colour with a floral patterning. The image shows a fairly simple line drawing of a standing figure wearing long robes with large flowing sleeves, and wearing sandals. The facial features are finely drawn compared to the figure which is drawn in thick black lines. The figure is of an old man, looking away to the side, with his mouth open, showing his teeth. He wears large hooped earrings and there is some ornamentation in his hair. The image is set against a light jade green background with vertical and horizontal dark green strips of patterning.
