What’s this look like?

Zooming out:

Does it sort of look like a person, in a boat, in a skiff?

The mise-en-scene, or half of it, anyway.

AAM BGC Cat. 2 Landscape, approx. 1602, right screen. By Kaiho Yusho (approx. 1533-1615). Pair of six-panel screens; ink and gold on paper. Saint Louis Art Museum, Friends Fund (59:1962.1-2)

That’s what they call a “great efficiency of ink,” huh?

And best of all, there’s no glass or nothing to get in your way – there’ll be nada betwixt you and a 409-year-old masterpiece.

Now, that’s old bidness, that’s what’s going away after this weekend.

Here’s the new bidness, coming up in February 2011.
