8 panel Screen, View from Ro-jo by Yamazaki Kodo
A small 8 panel screen dated 1923 and titled “View from the tower of Ro-Jo”. Rojo refers to Komatsu Castle, one of the principle dwellings in the powerful Kaga domain established by Maeda Toshitsune in modern day Komatsu city Ishikawa prefecture. The screen is painted in a contemporary (for the time) Nanga style using ink and light pigments on gold flaked paper. It is bordered simply in an austere lacquer wood frame. The screen measures 23 x 98 inches (58 x 249 cm) and is in fine condition.
Born in Niigata in 1880, Kodo studied the Nanga style of painting under Yamada Kaido, settling in Kyoto.
