Japanese four-fold screen

Abstract

Gold leaf and paint. Depicts court ladies enjoying an outing in a summertime landscape. Painted in the Heian style, possibly illustrating a scene from the Tales of Genji. The details are focused on the all-important social groups (as many anthropologists have argued, it has been historically the small, face-to-face group--not the individual--that is the elemental unit of Japanese society) and the elegance of the courtly textile fashions represented.
