Hi, I would like some help identifying the artist of this painting. I think it is of Mt Fuji. It is very simple but I really like the bold diagonal of the mountain and that it is not centered on the mountain---The sky is just as important.
My guess is that it was created/framed in about the 1950's due to age of the previous paper backing and the general style and materials of the frame. It has a glass front, fabric looks to be yellowed from age and the cardboard backing is contributing (acid).
There is some info written in pencil on the back wood that says something like "not li #608 Bush (Brush?)". The fabric measures 21.5"×19" (backside).
I included pictures of the above. What type of care should I give to fabric artwork? I will remove the cardboard since I know it is no good for any artwork. Any info you can offer is greatly appreciated!
