Description

67 inches H. x 142 inches W. (6 panels) The type originated in the Momoyama period, when they were presented to visiting warlords, to take home as a memento of their visit to Kyoto. This particular example is relatively late for the type, but a good example. The iconography for this particular type of screen pairs is set, and the example follows the program for the right hand screen of the original pair, depicting the colorful floats of the Gion Matsuri (Kyoto's "signature" festival) in LR, and various Kyoto landmarks, like the Kiyomizudera (a temple with a veranda supported on high pilings) in the upper right.
