N.d., circa 1900. 28.5 by 18 cm. Sixteen paintings, each measuring 28.5 by 36 cm, by an unknown hand. Paintings are of a flower vase, birds on branches, on a pipe or by the sea, a deer, pine cones, a cat, cranes, a woman having tea (perhaps), a tea kettle set among shoots of flowers, a butterfly above a stream, flower petals, foliage and insects. The paintings are done with bold, sure strokes. The paint is sometimes quite palpable. The style is simple, direct, economical. The paintings can each stand alone, but there is a cumulative impact from the album. Soiling and wear to the cover. About one third of the album remains blank and unused. The paintings themselves are clean.
