Drying Fishnets in the Four Seasons

Catalogue Description:
One of a pair of six-panel screens, the other half being 59.7.2. The screens depict fishnets draped across posts, among grasses along a sandy shoreline. The shore and clouds are represented in gold. The screens trace the four seasons, running from right to left, with short green grasses marking spring, taller grasses marking summer, browning grasses gone to seed indicating autumn, and snow indicating winter.
