18th Century Antique Japanese Gold Leaf Screen with Blossoms and Birds

About

This six panel screen depicts the transition from spring to summer, circa 1750. This sensitivity to seasonal change is an important part of Shinto, Japan’s native belief system and painters often depicted a single environment transitioning from spring (plum blossoms) to summer (peonies). This screen was obviously one of a pair, the other depicting autumn to winter. Japanese painters expressed not only their fondness for this natural cycle but also captured an awareness of the inevitability of change, a fundamental Buddhist concept. This screen has been gently restored, though leaving traces of age. Comes with custom iron wall brackets for hanging. It's a beautiful, finely painted screen.
