Four-panel byôbu 屏風
Price: € 550,00
Fine low four-panel byôbu 屏風 (room divider) with a landscape painting on silk with a view on Mount Fuji 富士山 (Fujisan).
In front of a mountain ridge is a small traditional Japanese style house with a thatched roof. A bit further to the left walks a fisherman over a wooden bridge surrounded by a vast waterscape. But of course the most prominent is the majestic Mount Fuji in the background.
Mounted by a thin and broad silk border in different shapes of orange/brown. Protected by a wooden frame with its original hardware.
In a good condition with traces of age and wear. Please take a close look at some water damage in the lower right corner and some wear to the frame. For a clear condition reference, please look at the photos as well.
Due to its smaller size and because the screen is light in weight, the byôbu is very suitable to be mounted flat on a wall and presented as one piece of art.
Total width: 166.4 cm (2 x 42.6 cm, and 2 x 40.6 cm); Height: 91.2 cm.
Mount Fuji, or Fugaku, located on the island of Honshū, is the highest mountain in Japan, standing 3,776.24 m (12,389.2 ft). Mount Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone, which is covered in snow for about five months of the year, is commonly used as a cultural icon of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photography. Mount Fuji is one of Japan’s “Three Holy Mountains” (三霊山, Sanreizan) along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku. It is a Special Place of Scenic Beauty and one of Japan’s Historic Sites. (From Wikipedia).
