Sold, Thank you
The 1000th piece to be loaded in the catalog! Offered is an 2 18th century (Edo period) Japanese Kano School 6 panel seasonal screen of pigment and applied gold on paper. Egrets gather about a snow laden willow along a stream, flowers blossioming under the snow indicative of the strength and endurance of nature. Clouds of applied gold leaf fill the scene, with open areas covered in a sprinkling of powdered gold mixed with tiny gold squares. Truly fine detail. The painting is bordered in dark blue cloth woven with large dragon dials in silver thread and features a black lacquered wooden frame. The frame is fixed with decorative plates featuring 2 Mon (family crests) and the nail covers are in the shape of the crest of the Tokugawa Shogun. The backing paper dates to the early 20th century (Meiji/Taisho period) and is in good condition except for some abrasions on the outside two panels typical of age. The screen measures 146-1/2 by 68-1/4 inches (376 x 73 cm). Professional packaging and Express Shipping is included in the item price.
