This tranquil pond scene is done in sumi on gold leaf and has a black lacquer wooden frame. Appearing to date from Meiji or early Taisho, the various cranes and songbirds are depicted with light and playful brushstrokes giving the piece an air of serenity and calmness. Especially eye-catching in low-light atmospheres, the gold leaf appears resonant and warm.

This screen stands 67 inches tall (170.5 cm) and each panel measures 25.2 inches in width (64 cm) for a total length of 151.2 inches (384 cm). Recently retouched by a traditional screen mounter, it is in very good condition with some minor abrasions and blistering which hint at its age. International shipping is not included in the price. ** Please inquire for an estimate. **
