Large Folding Screen with Rinpa Style Painting, Edo
Item Details
Description
Opaque mineral pigments and ink on paper in tarashikome, gofun and moriage technique, laid down on gold leaf ground; silk brocade frame
Japan, Edo period (18th/19th century)
Folding screen consisting of six panels adorned with Rinpa style painting
Originally presumably part of pair featuring a lyrical representation of the four seasons
On the front depicting spring and summer flowers
Seal: Inen
Overall dimensions: c. 173.5 x 360 cm
Dimensions of each panel: 173.5 x 60 cm
Condition: see condition report
Provenance: acquired in Japan in 1980, thence by descent
Estimate by Auctionata Expert: 3,000 Euro

The painted panels depict from left to right a blossoming cherry tree (end of March to mid-April), followed by wisteria in white and blue (May to June), poppies (May to June/July), peonies (summer) and Japanese dogwood (August). Hence one can assume that the missing folding screen completing the pair showed representations of autumn and winter plants.



The round cinnabar red seal Inen (? ?) was a workshop seal of Tawaraya Sotatsu ???? (active c. 1600-1640) and was mainly used by followers of the Sotatsu workshop, often without a specific artist’s signature.



Condition:

The folding screen is of overall good appearance with wear consistent with age. The paintings with small color losses in places and stains as well as traces of wood worm damage. The paper is thinned, revealing the substrate. A few restorations are visible. There is damage to the back wall with holes exposing the underlying layers of paper. The overall dimensions are circa 173.5 x 360 cm.
