Splendid Meiji Period Red and Black Lacquered Screen

Splendid Meiji Period Red and Black Lacquered Screen

Previously owned by Nelson A. Rockefeller, this stunning screen has two of the Buddhist guardians in high relief, polychromed and wearing elaborate robes, standing on snarling demons. The elaborately carved borders are bands of intertwining three-clawed dragons and the beautiful lower panels are decorated with Kerashishi among peony. The reverse is lacquered, shell and bone in-lay fans. For collectors this is a must. Very minor damage, but in splendid condition. A wonderful 72 inch by 74 inch art work (each panel is 72×37″), from one of the finest collections of oriental art. A one of a kind find. Very heavy – and very precious.
