Screens and Paintings - Rimpa school Edo period c.1800
Six-panel folding screen. paper, ink, colour pigments, and go fun. A stylized meandering river, asymmetrical composition and gold ground are all signature stylistic means of the Rimpa school, with its attempts to revive the best of the Yamato-e tradition. This bold, half-abstract decoration brings our focus to the design based on contrasts - dark river and bring gold, simple background and details of fans. The fans are decorated with Kiku (chrysanthemums), evocative of autumn. The flowers have been further highlighted using a technique called moorage - slightly raised relief obtained by painting with go fun, a paste of glue mixed with powder from baked and ground shells. Thanks to this suggestive volume, the flowers appear to 'pop out' of the painting.
