Dutch Ship on Hand-painted Card by Keisui?

Well-executed painting of a Dutch vessel and tender, presumably at Nagasaki. Signed and stamped by the artist at lower left with a signature that appears to read Keisui (瓊水)but we cannot find any record of an artist with this name. Quite possibly a highly-skilled amateur artist whose work is unknown. Probably dating from the Bakumatsu Era (c1850s).

 

Painted on thick card measuring 27.1 x 24cm.

 

In good condition with some wear, minor marks and minor discoloration.
