Japanese 20 Horses Fine Antique Six-Panel Screen, Edo Period, 19th Century



Japan, an early six-panel screen Byobu depicting 20 horses frolicking among mountains and pines. This attractive screen dates to the Edo period, circa 1850. Horses are a scarce motif for Japanese screens and we are pleased to have found this one on our last Japanese acquisitions travels. It is simple yet beautifully painted with a handsome gold mist background created by a skillful artist painter. A red seal is present on the lower far right panel. Dimensions: 68 high and 150 inches wide extended. Enticing and rare subject matter, this painting is skillfully and tastefully rendered in mineral paint pigments on paper and with a muted soft gold mist tone painted background. The original silk brocade border is present. Black lacquered wood with engraved bronze corner mounts nicely frame this serene and rare equine composition. Please look at the photographs closely that reveal all 20 horses. Lifetime guarantee of authenticity: All of our Asian works of art come with our Lifetime Authenticity Guarantee.
