Japanese Two Panel Screen: Moon and Flowers
Showa period (1926 - 1989) painting with a strong design of exotic lilies and a cluster of nadeshiko (dianthus) under a silver moon on gold. This painting has a modern flair, which is indicative of the time it was painted. In the 1950s, Japanese artists embraced Western influence in their artwork and would approach traditional imagery (like the sun, moon, and nature) with modern techniques. Mineral pigments on gold silk with an oxidized silver moon and a silk brocade border.
