Japanese 2-Panel Screen

In the style of the screens for the tea ceremony (furosaki) this very decorative screen represents two varieties of kiku (chrysanthemums) imperial flower, in polychromy and 2 crabs in suspension, on paper.
The association of crabs and chrysanthemums comes from a Chinese custom "the festival of the double nine". It is celebrated on the ninth day of the ninth moon, i.e. the ninth lunation of autumn. On this occasion picnics are organized with the family to admire the chrysanthemums and at the same time crabs are served in the gastronomic menus.
A signature, at the bottom, on the left panel, reads, done on an autumn day, Meiji Koshi (1900).
