This 18th-century folding screen is a stunning example of Japanese artistry. Beautifully painted with delicate brushwork, the evocative screen depicts a lively festival during the Edo period (1615–1912). The raucous scene is full of life; within the dense crowd, you can make out people dancing, playing instruments, riding horseback, and waving banners. Each of the eight panels is completely unique and painted with exquisite detail. Given the fragility of paper artworks, a screen of this age and quality is a rare and extremely rewarding discovery.
