Two-panel folding screen with eagles


Two-fold ancient japanese screen, depicting a winter landscape and three majestic eagles, two of which perched on the bare and twisted branches of an old tree, the other in flight, evidently about to fall on a prey not visible to us.
The artist, with impressive mastery and through the use of fine tip brushes, has managed to describe in detail, in a convincing way, the anatomical details of these wonderful birds of prey.
