This is a very excellent 18th century Japanese Kano School style of painting, done on a large 4 panel folding screen. The painting is a monochrome scene of a fishing village at the base of a mountain. The painting is done on black silk with a decorative two toned border which surrounds the entire piece. The paint appears to have some percentage of gold to it, as it has held up very nicely. There are a few spots where it the paint has appeared to have worn down, though it blends in very well with the other shading of this piece, making it difficult to actually spot out. It is held onto black lacquered segments made from wood, which have Japanese dome rivets holding them together. There are spots where the lacquer is much lighter, or looks to have white bubbles forming around it, with other scuffs from transport present on the finish. Some edges do have the wood showing beneath, which also looks to be from transport, as this piece is quite old and was likely displayed in many different places. The corners have decorative pieces added for extra eye appeal, as well as stability, which all have a honeycomb pattern to them. A few smaller decorative pieces are added to the vertical edges of the frame. The back is a very nicely decorated woven material, which feels more sturdy than silk. The pattern also looks to be hand painted, with very small variations to each pattern segment. The frame does have some wear, as well as the rivets which have lost some of their finish. A metal plate is bent around a small segment of the far edge, which has some mild wear to it, and actually comes right off. It may possibly be part of a simple system to keep this piece closed shut. There are some slits on the backing of the woven material on segments that come together when open, though they are all even, and spaced out, perhaps in an assembly process limited by material sizes. This piece approximately measures 65 1/2 inches wide, and around 35 3/4 inches.................See Images****
