  • Thumbnail for Pine Tree with Birds and Flowers
    Pine Tree with Birds and Flowers by Anonymous artist of the Kano school

    Single six-panel screen. Ink, colors, and gold leaf on paper. 68" x 132.5". Although the artist is unidentified, there is a single jar-shaped seal, with the characters effaced, impressed on the right side. This shape seal is typically used by artists of the Kano school. This attribution concurs with the style of the painting, which is typical of Kano-school artists. Normally screens are made in pairs, so this one is missing its mate. The presence of the seal on the right side, as well as the composition (with the pine tree on the right and body of water on the left) suggest this is the right side of a pair. One of the most interesting features of this painting is the appearance of black underdrawing outlines of flowers adjacent to the white flowers, composed of thickly applied pigment, on the second panel from the right. These flowers were never meant to be visible in the finished painting. Their outlines were preliminary design features created by the artist in the process of sketching out his composition and then covered over by the gold leaf. Over time, the ink has bled through the gold which once obscured them. Painting has undergone restoration twice, in the 1920s and again in 1974.
