"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
There was just a Antiquing special on PBS Channel 2 in MN, and they appraised one of those screens at something around $50,000. The lady had it in her basement when she bought the house. There was a little bit of water damage on the bottom and that was considered in this price! It was beautiful. And it was a very long one, Probably 9-12 panels.
It's amazing to see this "art with function"...and I wonder what was more important at the time. The art or the function?Maybe with so much art interwoven into their culture it was seen no different than most of the product art we take for granted.It would seen a shame/
