Cocks and Hens

  • by Ito Jakuchu
  • (From a set of nine panels)
  • Ink on paper
  • Proportions:

These paintings by Ito Jakuchu (1716 - 1800) were made for the Hojo Hall of Kaiho-ji Zen Temple (Obaku sect) in Fushimi, Kyoto.

Including the few panels that are missing today, the length of this set of paintings as a whole was about ten meters, even longer than another set of paintings by Jakuchu from Saifuku-ji Temple in Osaka. Both sets of paintings are both of the same subject and were painted in the same year, 1790. However, while the Saifuku-ji set is done in color on gold leaf, this set is in ink on white paper.

This set of panels is a quintessential mature masterpiece of Ito Jakuchu.
