Japanese artist Tawaraya Sotatsu (ca. 1570 – ca. 1640) is celebrated for his mastery of tarashikomi, a technique that brought to life every detail of his nuanced paintings. These exquisite accessories are adapted from his Painted Fans Mounted on a Screen in our Freer Gallery of Art.

"Mini screen is beautiful, but I was disappointed at enclosed information sheet which describes this item to be "inspired by a work in the Freer or Sackler Galleries." Sotatsu Tawaraya should be credited."

"When I opened the box and took the screen out, I knew that the recipient of this gift will be very happy with it. It is quite polished and elegant."

"These screens are being used below my mounted television screen to "hide" cabling and wiring."

"I bought two of these screens to "hide" cabling/cords below my mounted big-screen television set in the family room. The screens are a decorative muted item that fits into the decor."

"In the catalog and online, the colors were beautiful because of the use of flash photography. The actual colors are much more muted, to the extent of being almost "muddy". Very disappointing given that the subject matter had so much potential"
