18th Century Japanese Floral Paintings, Set of 5, Mineral Pigments on Gold Leaf

About

A set of 5 Japanese floral paintings from the 18th century. Each painted with mineral pigments directly applied to gold leaf. They were originally designed to be mounted on the leaves of a book; to be appreciated both for their exceptional beauty and also to aid in the identification of the flowers and their associated seasons. Presently the paintings are individually backed with Japanese washi paper and are ready to be inserted into Western style frames. The leaves are slightly irregularly sized, the tallest measuring 12.8 cm and the shortest measuring 11.5 cm (5” ~ 4.5”). The widest is 10.7 cm and the narrowest is 9.9 cm (4.2” ~ 3.9”).
