An exquisite two-fold screen (屏風: byobu) dating from the Edo period (1615-1868) made in the Rinpa school style.
The Rinpa school, also known as the Koetsu school, was created at the beginning of the Edo period by two genius artists of that era: Hon’ami Koetsu and Tawaraya Sotatsu. Ogata Kenzan and Ogata Korin, later in the period, also had considerable influence in its consolidation as a recognized art movement.
This particular byobu presents flowery motifs and birds rendered in sublime details. The vivid colors on a gold background are reminiscent of Korin’s style.
