Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Mori Yūzan was a grandson of Mori Kansai, who painted the folding screens 35.147 and 35.148, and one of his most important followers. Paintings of tigers were traditionally paired with paintings of dragons. The two creatures represented opposing forces, such as dryness (the tiger) and wetness (the dragon).
