Ten-panel folding screen; ink and color on silk:

“Books and Scholars’ Possessions”

Culture: Korea;  unidentified artist;  early 20th century
From the Met’s notes:
This screen belongs to a genre known in Korean as chaekgeori ( “books and things”).
“Each panel portrays an assemblage of neatly stacked volumes and other objects associated with scholarly activities, including paper, ink, brush, and ink stone as well as archaic bronze vessels, porcelain, fruits, flowering plants, and small pieces of furniture.”
