Japanese Iris and Gold Painted Screen Metal Bookmark
During the Azuchi-Momoyama period in late 16th century Japan, there was a building boom of castles, as the feudal lords or daimyos became more powerful. The decoration of these castles included painted screens with a plenitude of gold leaf. These iris flowers come from such a screen thought to be painted by a Kano-ha artist.
