This is an antique wooden Tsuitate, a room divider with a removable stand that was hand painted on each side featuring a Kabuki actor on one side and Mount Fuji on the other side. Each was painted and signed by a different artist. It measures that 49" tall, 44.5" wide, 12" deep. Tsuitate were typically used in a Japanese room to separate groups of people. Considered a privacy wall, people would extend the screen with an invisible wall that acts as a make believe sound and physical barrier so that what happens on each side, stays on each side.
