The restoration of a Japanese or Korean painting involves an assortment of practical as well as philosophical decisions. And these must be directed both towards the image we call the 'work of art', as well as its support system. Particularly in Japan this format of image and supports is the painting, and thus any conservation work must embrace both components in tandem so as to achieve an integrated, harmonious result.
The selection of the appropriate textile materials as well as the style of mounting represent critical aesthetic decisions in the restoration process. These are primarily based upon established historical principles, the type of painted image, and the owner's taste. These factors account for the variety in the appearance of the mountings found on the painting in this gallery.
