2020 cleaning and remounting of kanō hōgai's eternal holy age

the very large scroll needs a remounting. bubbles had formed and many creases create the risk of breaks in the paper.

the painting and the fabrics of the mounting are stained by pollution.

all parts are cleaned and washed.

the fabrics of the mounting are reused and newly arranged to  cut away the discolorations and match better the pattern in the several parts.

the scroll is shortened.
