This beautiful Japanese byobu screen from the 18th-19th century is depicting a scene from the famous 11th century novel written by Lady Murasaki. It is a continuous scene of a landscape setting with male and female figures in various pavilions engaged in conversation or practicing the arts, and a daimyo dressed in his elaborate regalia riding a black horse with a red saddle blanket with his retainers in the foreground. A layer of gilt clouds meander throughout the landscape, ink, colors and gilt on paper. Size is 48" high x 112" wide.
