In "Japanese Paintings and Works of Art" at Erik Thomsen, 23 East 67th Street, a dramatic pair of screens from the Taisho period (1912-26) by Suzuki Shonen (1849-1918) is the star attraction in the fourth floor gallery. Shonen was famous for his depictions of pine trees, and he painted this pair of six-panel folding screens, entitled Pine Trees, at the end of his long artistic career, with a striking combination of fine details and bold strokes of ink on gold leaf. The pair measures more than 24 feet in width.
