Japanese Edo Six Panel Table Screen After Maruyama Okyo


Fantastic diminutive Japanese Edo period table top screen depicting a lively water landscape with flora and fauna. The screen is beautifully painted on gold leaf with a pair of pheasants and flowering Sakura or cherry along a deep blue river. Late Edo/early Meiji period painting bearing 2 seals reading Okyo and Chusen. The scene is very intricately painted in the manner and style of Maruyama Okyo with bright, vivid color pigments. Set in a black lacquered frame with a silk brocade border. The frame and backing commensurate age but, the actual painting is in good condition appearing to have spent most of its life folded. Very impressive piece from an estate in San Francisco, CA.

Dimensions: 40.5"w x 0.25"d x 15.5"h

Circa: 19th Century, Japan

Materials: Brass, Gold Leaf, Wood, Silk, Paper

Condition: Good, minor wear consistent with age and use. Beautifully crafted with age appropriate wear. The frame and backing are distressed with losses as seen in photos. The painting is in good condition with aged patina and wear on the joints and folds as expected. One part of the frame is missing.
