Japanese Scrolls & Screens 2020 Wall CalendarPOMEGRANATE
Throughout many centuries of art history in Japan, exquisitely painted scrolls and screens have been revered art forms, representing some of the highest achievements in Japanese art — some are Registered National Treasures. Japanese artists historically used ink, colors — mineral pigments such as ground azure and malachite — and gold leaf on silk or paper to create portraits and scenes of the natural world as well as subjects from literature, mythology and sacred writings.
Hanging scrolls and folding screens have long lent beauty and versatility to the flexible layouts of traditional Japanese homes. These works of art are expressions of personal taste as well as symbols of wealth and power.
Dating from the 18th through 20th centuries, the scrolls and screens reproduced in this calendar are from the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
