Maruyama Ōkyo 丸山応挙

(Japanese, 1733-1795)

Pair of six-panel folding screens, ink, gold, and silver on paper

Overall: 154 x 362 cm (60 5/8 x 142 1/2 in.)

Leonard C. Hanna, Jr. Fund 1973.156



Ōkyo painted these panoramas in the summer of 1784. Regarded as Kyoto's most important painting teacher and accomplished artist, he had studied Western painting techniques, "realistic" sketching from nature, and traditional Japanese style painting (yamato-e). The naturalistic quality of these scenes results from a blend of detailed observation of nature and a remote, even detached regard for man's place in the world.
