A pair of six panel screens, the Crow Screens have been one of the most iconic works in the museum’s collection. These screens present a striking image of ninety black crows against gold background. The screens capture the motion of the crow so cinematically: one could almost see them taking flight or hear their cawing. Its authorship remains a mystery because of the absence of a signature, but whoever painted these screens clearly observed the bird carefully and was a master in rendering its motions and poses.
