Japanese Screen of Hunting Scene 17/18th Century

Rare Japanese 6 panel-screen in ink, color pigments and gold leaf. On the second screen, on the last panel on the left, one can distinguish many Tartar warriors hunting as well as falconers on horseback. On the rightmost three panels, a lake and rice paddies, a variety of wild birds, all against a backdrop of mountains, waterfalls and trees in the style of the Kano school interspersed with clouds of gold and gold flecks.

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 Tartar envoys paying homage (inv. no. 11.4450)...
