Description

Although there is no consensus on which church is represented in this fan painting, most believe it to be the one on Shijobomon, due to its unusual three-story construction. This painting was among a series of sixty-one fans painted by Kano Shoshu, mounted in an album showing famous sites in and around Kyoto, of which only twenty-four paintings are thought to survive. - abridged from catalogue entry by Christine Guth.
