Originally an eight-panel, standard folding screen, the Osaka-zu byobu has been disassembled into separate panels and embedded in the wall of the “Japanese Cabinet” at Schloss Eggenberg in Graz, Austria. The folding screen is known to have been in the possession of the Eggenberg family since the late seventeenth century. It had received no special attention until Dr. Barbara Kaiser, Chief Curator of the Schloss Eggenberg Museum, set out to restore and investigate it from 2000 to 2004. The restoration work revealed that the screen was likely to be of Japanese origin. Dr. Kaiser contacted Dr. Franziska Ehmcke, a researcher at University of Cologne, Germany, for further investigation. When Dr. Ehmcke was invited to Kansai University in 2006, she visited the Research Center for Naniwa Osaka Cultural Heritage Studies, with a picture of the folding screen at Schloss Eggenberg in her hand. After examining the picture, the Center’s research staff confi rmed that the screen shown in the picture was a rare folding screen depicting the Osaka Castle and the surrounding area during the Toyotomi era. The purpose of this research is to produce digital contents for publishing research results on this folding screen. These are expected to be used for exhibition commentary at the Schloss Eggenberg Museum and for educational activities at Kansai University.
