A pair of large screens By Kawamura Manshu (1880-1942), depicting what woud have, at that time, been quite exotic…Western cattle grazing on a plain. Ink and light pigment on applied gold with brown patterned silk border. Each screen is 376 x 171 cm (67-1/2 x 148 inches) and in overall fine condition. These screens are consistent in style and scale with the artists work circa 1910, and bearing in mind the subject matter are likely a late Meiji (pre-Bunten) set of Exhibition Screens. For more photographs please DM me.
Kawamura Manshu was born in Tokyo, but studied under Yamamoto Shunkyo in Kyoto, then the cultural center of Japan. He was displayed and often prized at the Bunten/Teiten National Exhibitions. His works are held in the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto and the Mie Prefectural Museum among others,
