Description

In the Museums collection is a pair of exquisite six-panel screens from the Edo period (16151868). The screens feature a profusion of flowering plants and vegetables painted with boneless brushwork (without outlines) in mineral colors and ink on a gold-leafed ground. Flowers and grasses of the four seasons are depicted on one screen of the pair, in which 34 plants have been identified. The screens were probably painted by an eighteenth-century follower of one of the Rinpa schools great masters, Ogata Korin. We created our scarf by adapting scenes from two panels of the floral screen and a border that frames one corner.

Art History

During the Edo period (16151868), the harshly controlled feudal society governed for over 250 years by the descendants of Tokugawa Ieyasu (15421616), creativity came not from its leaders, a conservative military class, but from the two lower classes in the Confucian social hierarchy, the artisans and merchants. Although officially denigrated, they were free to reap the economic and social benefits of this prosperous age.
