ink on paper, h 171.5cm × w 372.4cm More details

A mighty sea eagle dominates the right section, contrasting with the left screen where a series of waves vanish into the distance. Ganryo was a painter of the Kishi School, whose adherents sought to create a vibrant form of naturalism that communicated the essence of their subjects. His work is characterised by an almost agitated style of brushwork, as in the waves which rise from the surface of the sea like dragon’s claws.
