artist :SHIOZAWA, KANPO
age :contemporary
size :H92 x W168 x D1.8(cm)
size :H36 x W66 x D 3/4(inch)
A four-panel folding screen made of multi-layered Washi paper pasted onto a wooden frame.  The background is finished with square gold leaves put on to the Washi, over which beautiful silk is stretched.
Red and white plum blossoms are painted with the stems rising up vigorously and the branches reaching across the space.  This design expresses the vitality of life, showing that even if a branch is broken, there is energy to recuperate.
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.
