"Egrets beneath Tall Grass" Japanese Gilt Four-Panel Screen



Used to partition a room and block unpleasant drafts, the standing screen has long been a fixture of Chinese and Japanese interiors. Carefully placed to instill harmony, a tall screen offered privacy and provided an expansive surface for Fine paintings. Likely intended for Western markets, this early 20th century Japanese standing screen is delicately painted atop a backdrop of brilliant gold pigment and black lacquer. The four panel screen is decorated with a tranquil scene of white egrets gathered beneath gently swaying tall grasses. This screen is fitted with alternating hinges and stands upright without supports.
