"Scenes In and Around Kyoto "
(Rekihaku "A" version)
pair of six-panel folding screens, 16th century

This is the oldest extant version of a genre of folding screen paintings which depict the thriving city of Kyoto in the four seasons. Rekihaku's "Scenes In and Around Kyoto " was painted in the Middle Ages and is often still known as the Machida version or the Sanjo version. Both refer to the names of former collections. Clues in the scenes indicate that the painting was probably executed in 1525. Each screen measures 138.2 x 342.8 cm.
