Kozuka with the Monk Mongaku


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The monk Mongaku (1139-1203; also known as Endô Moritô) is frequently depicted doing penance sitting under the Nachi waterfall. He became a monk after inadvertently killing his cousin rather than her husband. He was twice exiled from Kyoto because of his opposition to the emperor. The artist signed the kozuka on the reverse.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
