A large two-fold screen utilizing ink and natural colors on silk. Rendered in dramatic style, large areas of saturated color define the role rice plays in Japan’s economy and culture. The subject of Japanese peasants cultivating rice in the fields, an every-day activity, treated in this screen with poetic romanticism. Takeuchi Meiho ink signature and seal. Height, 66''; length, 80.5''. 20th century. This piece is in very good condition, with wear commensurate with age and use.
