This is an original 1938 halftone print of a Japanese screen titled, "Chinese Sages and Immortals," created in the 18th century. The only immortal easily identified is Huang Ch'u-ping, located in the first panel. Ch'u-ping practiced meditation in the mountains where he lived as a goat herder. When his brother came to visit one day, he commented on the lack of goats. Ch'u-ping touched a nearby rock with his staff, and it turned into a goat.

Period Paper is pleased to present a collection of halftone prints featuring Japanese art screens and sliding panels, or fusuma. The original pieces were displayed at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts, during the winter of 1935-1936, in order to acquaint the public with Japanese artwork. The exhibition offered pieces from the Ashikaga, Momoyama, Tokugawa and Meiji periods, and featured numerous artists from each time frame. It is an interesting collection and depicts the transformation of Japanese artwork from the 15th to the 20th century.
