artist :SUZUKI, SAZANAMI
age :contemporary
size :H62 x W163 x D1.8(cm)
size :H24 x W63 x D 3/4(inch)
A four-panel folding screen made of multi-layered Washi paper pasted onto a wooden frame, with coarsely woven raw silk stretched over.
This is one of the traditional lakeside landscapes of Japan.  With a distant view of mountains, a country house is painted on a gentle slope leading to a lake.  The artist captures the perfect moment of a boat first being launched.
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.
