The artist Ogata Kenzan is best known for his ceramic works, but his artistic interests also included painting and calligraphy. This folding fan was painted by Kenzan with a basket of balloon flowers on a gold-leafed background. Kenzan's inscription and red seal mark appear at the right. The back of the fan is inscribed with a poem.
