A fan with a Japanese design.

Painted paper leaves, stained bamboo guards and sticks, made in Japan, about 1890-1910

This fan depicts a woman dressed in the traditional Japanese kimono, within an Eastern landscape. The striking use of a limited number of colours, in this case only red and black, was frequently seen in Japanese art.

Given by Mrs P Radcliffe-Evans, 1960
