A powerful image in blue, green and white splashed across the gilded silk panels of this pair of two panel screens by Yamashita Chikusai dating likely from the pre-war era, 1930s. Each panel is 71.5 x 152 cm (28 inches by five feet) and both are in excellent condition, retaining the original backing paper. Spectacular, the modernism and simplicity would go well with contemporary decor.
Yamashita Chikusai (1885-1973) was born in Kyoto and studied under the important turn of the century master Yamamoto Shunkyo (1871-1933) from the age of fifteen, becoming one of the most appreciated students, with hi works exhibited at the Kosokyokai Seinen Young artists exhibition. Later he regularly exhibited at the Bunten /Teiten Nitten National Exhibitions, where he would garner many prizes, and eventually serve as a juror. His work is held in the collection of the The National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.
