|Title:||Japanese folding screen with pine tree|
|Size:||68.50" x 223.00"|
Japanese six panel folding screen (byobu) of an ancient, snow laden, gnarled pine tree on gold leaf ground. The tree grows from a rocky outcropping with a group of white and red peonies. The pine tree is a symbol of longevity and endurance for its ability to reach a great age and to remain an evergreen throughout the coldest winter. The peony is an emblem of riches, honor love and affection, as well as an omen of good fortune. The size and proportions of this screen indicated that it was most likely painted to be a backdrop to an outdoor performance of Noh theater. Edo Period, Mid 18th century. Recently remounted. 223" long (18' 7") x 68.5" high.
