Gentle and delicate, "Egrets Amongst Lotuses" is signed Kyokata and dates to the Edo Period (1603-1868), but the style is reminiscent of the 17th-century Rinpa School - a prominent school of Japanese painting. The term byobu means “wind wall” and as the name suggests, painted folding screens were traditionally used in Japanese homes to elegantly block drafts of air.
