A two-panel folding screen with autumn landscape

Circa 1860-70

Height: 171 cm - length: 186 cm

The landscape is dominated on the right by a maple tree with lush autumn foliage, contrasting with the flatly painted landscape on the opposite panel of the screen. The golden clouds, which are also unrealistically placed in the foregroun, give light and rhythm to the composition. 

The stylised waves and the pictorial style with which the strips of land and the leaves are treated immediately recall the Rinpa school, an artistic movement created by the painter Tawaraya Sōtatsu in the 17th century, later taken up by the Kōrin brothers in the following century and very successful again in the second half of the 19th century.
