Description : This is a folding screen divided into four panels. The frame is made of dark wood and each panel has a leather insert with painted floral designs. Each panel has a wooden mesh on the upper area, with a carved human face set in the center. The frame has been carved with an eagle figure and two smaller human figures on top of each panel.
Commentaires : The folding room screen was developed in Japan and China with examples as early as the 4th century B.C. The folding screen was introduced to European traders and was initially used for specific ends such as a way to display Western geography. Western interest in folding screens was renewed in the mid-19th century after an American expedition to Japan opened more contact with the outside world. This came at an appropriate time as there was a renewed interest in decorative arts in the West. This screen came from Clibrig estate which was the summer residence of Robert MacKay a prominent Montreal businessman. Cairine (MacKay) Wilson, his daughter, owned it afterwards. She was the first female Senator in Canada, and a noted humanitarian. Her daughter bought the house after her mother's death in 1962. Their house was built 1906 and was torn down in 1972. The donor was a friend of Sen. Wilson's daughter.
Fonctions : Used in the home of Robert MacKay and his daughter Senator Cairine Wilson.
