Yamamoto Baiitsu

(Japanese, 1783-1856)

One of a pair of four-panel folding screens; ink, color, and cut gold foil on paper

Image: 169 x 350.5 cm (66 9/16 x 138 in.)

Bequest of Mrs. A. Dean Perry 1997.109.1

Description

This byōbu composition differs from most in that it comprises two four-panel screens, rather than two six-panel units. Since the current mounting is modern, it is impossible to determine whether its present configuration represents its original design. Some panels may have been removed to help the screens better fit into a modern interior space. Baiitsu worked almost exclusively in monochromatic ink tones and favored classical Chinese painting themes.
