Japanese Scrolls 2020 Wall Calendar
Throughout many centuries of art history in Japan, exquisitely painted scrolls and screens have been revered art forms, representing some of the highest achievements in Japanese art—some are Registered National Treasures. Japanese artists historically used ink, colors—mineral pigments such as ground azure and malachite—and gold leaf on silk or paper to create portraits and scenes of the natural world as well as those of literature, mythology, and sacred writings.Hanging scrolls and folding screens have long lent beauty and versatility to the flexible layouts of traditional Japanese homes. These works of art are expressions of personal taste as well as symbols of wealth and power.Dating from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries, the scrolls and screens reproduced in this calendar are from the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.All of Pomegranate’s calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® and manufactured by an FSC certified printer. FSC certification promotes responsible forest management by ensuring that forestry practices are environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically viable.
