46 items
Folding screens, called byobu, have been used by the Japanese for hundreds of years to create intimate spaces, as room dividers, as well as add beauty to any room. Traditional byobu are usually two, four, or six panel screens which have a lacquered wood edge. Both paper and silk were used as materials for the artists to paint on. Many pieces exhibit a gold or silver leaf background and create a luminous effect. Click on any of the items below to see more detailed photographs and descriptions.
