20th Century Four-Panel Chinoiserie Gilt Painted Folding Screen

A remarkable 20th Century chinoiserie four-panel folding screen. On one side the panels are decorated with an idyllic landscape with figures, all rendered in hand-applied gilt. The other side is adorned with hand-painted floral patterning. The backdrop for these beautiful gilt and painted motifs is a glossy black that intensifies the gold hues.

There is visible wear throughout that is appropriate for the screen's age and use, including craquelure and small punctures and splits.


Dimensions of each panel:
24 in. width
96 in. width when fully unfolded
84 in. height
1.25 in. thickness
5 in. thickness when completely folded
