Subject:Help with scroll age and artist
Posted By: John Tue, Oct 13, 2020 IP: 2607:fb90:ef67:347:3

Hi I recently acquired a box of old scrolls. I will post them here one by one in the hopes of finding out more about them. Some actually have american writing on the tops like this one along with Chinese/Japanese writing. Any help is greatly appreciated. This one reads Kokyo. Would that be Harada Kōkyo 原田耕挙* (はらだ こうきょ)(1863-1925) or someone different?
