Recently brought to The Center, this six-panel Japanese screen, titled The Marriage Scene, measures twelve feet wide by nearly six feet tall. Each panel had its own list of condition issues, though several were notable throughout the entire piece. A tide line was present along the bottom of every panel, indicating that the screen had been exposed to high levels of moisture. Hinges connecting the panels showed signs of strain and degradation. Previous conservation campaigns were evident by the presence of overpainted tapes that had been applied to repair damage to the seams. Scratches and abrasions were noted throughout the surface, and areas of crizzling had resulted in paint loss, specifically in the red painted fields.
