Japanese Screen of Hunting Scene 17/18th Century

Rare Japanese 6-panel screen in ink, color of pigments and gold leaf on paper with silk borders. On the right screen after the second panel, we can see a Tartar chief, accompanied by his retinue, holding a parasol and a banner, and observing his warriors on horseback hunting wild boars, rabbits and a deer. A group of mounted Tartars are engaged in this hunt using bows, arrows and spears. Interesting detail on the last panel, top left, a tiger and her cub on a rock is observing the scene.

These Tartars (or Tartars) are identifiable by their dashing equestrian poses, banners, prominent weapons, and fur-trimmed hats are distinctive. A few examples are held in Japanese and American collections. One of the first known is in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and attributed to the artist Kano Eitoku (1543-1590), shows Tartars sent to pay homage (inv. no. 11.4450)...
