Japanese Folding Screen "Byobu" from the Edo Period

About the Item

Japanese Screen "Byobu", from the Edo period (circa 1800), with two leaves in silk paper mounted on canvas with leather background. Beautiful floral decoration "Rimpa" with wading birds and water lilies. Slight accidents. The screen was used during the Edo Period in the palaces of Japanese aristocrats. The Byobu had two functions: to partition an open space and to block evil spirits. The Japanese floral decoration of the Edo Period (1603-1868) directly inspired the European movement which would create Art Nouveau based on the 3 Fs: Fauna, Flora, Feminine.

    Refined work by a painter from the first half of the 19th century, from the landscape of the "Rinpa" school by a painter from the end of the 18th century, the Rinpa school. Six panels painted in ink on gold leaf and "gofun" on vegetable paper. The flowers are made with the "gofun" technique, natural or pigmented white oyster powder. Rinpa is one of the major historical schools of Japanese painting. The style was consolidated by the brothers Ogata Korin (1658–1716) and Ogata Kenzan (1663–1743). This folding screen has a very clean design that leaves plenty of room for the beautiful golden landscape. It comes flat and you can easily hang it with our hooks. Lucio Morini...
