Hand-Painted Japanese Folding Screen Byobu Cranes Painting, Watercolor, Goldleaf

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The painting of gathering of cranes of this six-panel screen is hand-painted in watercolor, on squares of gold leaf which are applied by hand to the paper base over carefully jointed wooden lattice frames. Lacquer rails are then applied to the perimeter to finish the edges of the screen and provide support.

Traditional folding screens from Japan, known as Byobu - literally “protection from wind”, were originally developed to be used as dividers both indoors and outdoors, the zigzag construction allowing them to be either free-standing or wall-mounted.
