Description

Though rarely mentioned in official histories, Socho was an accomplished painter whose talent is readily apparent to the modern eye. For his compositions he chose traditional Japanese stories or everyday events. This painting belongs to a triptych (set of three) that was recently converted from folding screen panels to hanging scrolls.
