Outstanding 19th Century "Great Japanese Fire" Original Watercolor Painting

$3,500

About

Outstanding 19th century "Great Japanese Fire" original watercolor painting Highly detailed original watercolor of a great Japanese fire. The painting depicts the evacuation of residents and the valiant effort to distinguish the fire. We are unsure which historical fire this represents, though most likely a notable moment in Japanese history. Watercolor dimensions 57" x 22". The frame measures 61" x 28". No signature. Very good antique condition. One of the finest paintings in our collection. The large scale of the painting will make this the focal point of many collections.
