Traditional Japanese Byobu Showa
Silk, Four Panel, Screen with Gold Leaf
Japanese, 1988
An excellent example of a late 20th century work by Japanese traditional artists. A silk brocade painting mounted as a four panel screen with a gold leaf border. Depicts a traditional fishing village landscape with thatched roof buildings near a water line with forest and mountains in the background. The coloration is ochre and green tones. Signature at lower left. Painter is Sano Shunsen (1923). The artist trained and worked under: Shunko Mochizuki (1893); who's works are held in the collection of the national Museum of Modern Art, Toyoko. Mounting artist - Matsuki Jimyosai (1930). A byobu style screen functioned as protection against the wind coming in from traditional home openings. In addition the screens served to divide large open spaces into more intimate and private areas, often for the purposes of dressing or sleeping. Excellent condition with certificates of manufacture. Dimensions: 24" Height; 63" width (at full extension).
