last week I went to the Prado Museum. There is always something new to see.
On this occasion there was an exhibition about two Japanese screens.
It was a wonderful surprise because three things that I like a lot, came together, gold leaf, Japanese Art and screens.
Two Japanese screens painted on paper were display in the Central Gallery of the Prado Museum.
This was the first time that works of this type have been displayed at the Museum.
The Japanese screens belong to the Rimpa School, which extends for almost the entire Edo period (1603-1868), a time that coincides with the complete isolation of Japan regarding external influences.
If you're interested in knowing something more about the exhibition you can view the next video made in the Prado Museum commented by Mr. Hiroyoshi Tazawa (Tokyo National Museum) and Mrs. Miori Ohashi (Seikado Bunko Art Museum of Tokio).
(The video has subtitles in Spanish and English, you can activate in the menu on the right top of the page).
Thank you for reading.
