A four-panel folding screen made of multi-layered Washi paper pasted onto a wooden frame.
Square gold leaves are pasted onto the Washi, spread over with beautiful silk.On this background, autumn plants such as chrysanthemums, ivy and Chinese bellflowers are painted in delicate balance, as though they exist in the meadows.The design makes the most of the unused space of the graceful gold base.Each line is painted in minute detail, and the entire work gives out a very soft and calm impression.
Borders of silk brocade and a black lacquered frame tone up the entire work.The artist's signature is on the bottom left.
Daily care only requires occasional dusting with a feather duster.Please avoid direct sunlight and excess dryness, just as you would do to care for your furniture.This will preserve the screen's quality for years to come.
