Edo Period, Early 19th Century





A delightful small folding screen of the Tosa School, painted in ink and color on gilt paper,
the 6 panels depicting a pair of blue shishi dogs siding colorful peonies,
amidst rocks and a waterfall before bamboo,
all within a silk brocade border and hand-tooled metal cornered wooden framework;
the verso with original hand blocked paper


Tosa painters were the official painters for the imperial court from the 15th to the 19th century.
Tosa artists paint in the Yamato-e style and often took themes from works of literature.
Tosa painters used bright colors and painted decorative works with attention to detail.


Note : This is apparently intended to be a standing screen, and best suited for that position.

a few tiny pin holes at the fold line of the second panel to the left;
two small areas of silk mount missing lower right
bright clear colors with original intensity
