Yamaoka Tesshu was the son of a Shôgunatsbeamten and the daughter of the Shintôpriesters from the Kashima Shrine. He was a famous figure in the public life as a swordsman, calligrapher, and Hedonist. He took over after the fall of the Shôguns the responsibility for peace and security in Tokyo, was a close Confidante of the Meiji Emperor, and taught in combat sports. As a calligrapher, he went down in history as one of the Meiji-San-shu. (There were three famous calligraphers of the time; whose Name -shu (ship) is to be ended.) He wrote in the sense of a Zen-doctrine of his time, deliberately illegible, in order to increase the understanding of the required effort - a kind of Meditation in front of the calligraphy. His works are now sought after in Japan. - Provenance: From an old collection of a German scholar - Minim. rubbed, partial light fold, slightly rest., as a hanging scroll mounted with knobs made of wood, wood box
