Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • facsimiles - Exact copies of an original object, usually in the same dimensions as the original, especially of books, documents, prints, and drawings. Today often reproduced photographically; in the past, reproduced by engraving or other printmaking process.
  • Japanese - Nationality, periods, cultures, and styles found in Japan, either in historical times or in the present.
  • landscapes - Creative works, usually two-dimensional, depicting an outdoor scene dominated by the land, hills, fields, sky, trees, fields, rivers or other bodies of water, and other natural elements. Landscapes may include a near point of view in the foreground, but also usually depict a view into the distance. Landscapes may contain architecture or figures, but the primary focus remains the land. When an ocean, sea, or other large body of water dominates the picture, use "seascapes." For actual areas of land rather than depictions, use "landscapes (environments)."
  • Muromachi - Refers to the Japanese period and style of art that developed during the rise of the Asikaga shogunate (1338-1573). Although political unrest resulted from the Onin War (1467-1477), the period saw the development of the tea ceremony, flower arranging, the rise of Chinese influenced monochrome painting, and intricate laquer carvings. In architecture, the style is characterized by simple and austere structures, and the use of large landscape gardens designed after famous paintings.
  • paintings - Unique works in which images are formed primarily by the direct application of pigments suspended in oil, water, egg yolk, molten wax, or other liquid, arranged in masses of color, onto a generally two-dimensional surface.
  • scroll paintings - Refers to paintings having a long, narrow scroll format. Term is often used in the context of Chinese and Japanese paintings on either hanging scrolls (kakemono, if Japanese) or on handscrolls (emakimono, if Japanese). For written documents on long, rolled strips, see "scrolls (information artifacts)."
  • scrolls - Long strips of flexible material used for written documents and rolled for ease of handling and storage. For paintings on either hanging scrolls or handscrolls, use "scroll paintings."
