Antique Japanese Two-Panel Screen by Yanagisawa Kien



Antique Japanese two-panel screen from the Nagasaki School by Yanagisawa Kien (1704-1758). Dimensions: W 182cm x H 63cm. Kien was born at the residence of Kofu Domain during the Edo period. The domain lord of Kofu was Yanagisawa Yoshiyasu, a senior aide of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Kien's father was high-ranked Samurai and was in favour with his lord, therefore, Kien was also given special treatment from the domain. From his early days, he received an elite education in literary and military arts. He studied literal things from illustrious figures such as great Confucianist Ogyu Sorai. He started studying the Kano style painting from 8 years old, though, he criticized the Kano style by suggesting it had lost its substance when he was 12 years old and instead became a disciple of Watanabe Shuseki of the Nagasaki style and studied Chinese painting styles.
