Autumn Colours in Xiling, anonymous, c. 1850

ink, paint, gold, h 137cm More details

Japanese folding screens were used to divide large spaces and could be placed any way one wanted. Shown here is the back of a screen from 1700. Around 1850 the back was provided with a painted decoration, so that there was something to look at on both sides of the screen when it stood in the middle of a room.

On display in Aziatisch Paviljoen, room 2
