My Masterpiece: Japanese Gilded Panel Kit

by Metropolitan Museum of Art

Other Format



The Metropolitan Museum of Art houses a breathtaking pair of folding screens by Suzuki Kiitsu (1796-1858), a Japanese artist considered the last master of the Rinpa style of painting and admired for his depiction of leaves and flowers. Those screens have inspired this kit, which has two sheets of gold-colored paper, a preprinted cardstock panel, a wooden burnishing tool, four tubes of paint, a paintbrush, and a disposable paper palette.
