When we think of ancient Japanese porcelain, Imari is often quite bright, but not all Japanese Imari was brilliant. A famous 19th century porcelain maker Seto, Aichi Prefecture in Japan, its porcelain decorated with blue sapphire very distinctive paint the typical naturalist, Zen influenced items such as herbs dominated forests pine, willow and rock formations of windblown trees.
"Seto" refers to the city and the style of pottery originated there. Seto is also one of Japan famous "six old kilns".
Seto Porcelain arrived late. His first appearance in the 19th century, when he returned Kato Seto Tamikichi to the island of Kyushu, and successfully fired porcelain decorated cobalt blue. Tamikichi is, in fact, considered the "father of porcelain in the area Seto.
But to see the big picture, we must look through the long history of Japanese art and design, to identify some of the many influences, both internal and external, have contributed to today's recognizable "Japanese design.
To Admiral Perry opened Japan to the West (1854), with positive and negative results, the Japanese art and design was almost unknown in the Western world. Perry met with Japan has opened the doors of flooding a sharing of east / west lines, rarely seen before. In a decade that Japanese design concepts came to the West.
Two trade names used to illustrate the influence on Western art. The first, James Whistler, the great American and British painter of the mid 19th century, was one of the first Westerners to be influenced by the artistic tradition of Japan.
Whistler has developed rather an aesthetic response to life and he particularly admired Japanese artistic attitude does not distinguish between art and decorative arts. Your assessment of what led to Whistler for a wide range of artistic activities, strongly influenced by his art new "Japan.
The second example is the master of French Impressionism, Claude Monet. We do not know the famous story of discovery Monet's Japanese art is real or anecdotal? But legend says that Monet had fled to Amsterdam to escape the Prussian siege of 1871 in Paris. There or, if ever, There were some Japanese block prints for use in a food shop for wrapping paper. I could not believe what he saw and was so impressed he bought all available. This purchase changed his life and the history of Western art!
Monet was not shy of his fascination with Japan and its art and in 1876, five years after the visit to the Dutch grocery He painted "The Japanese", showing his first wife Camille in a kimono on a background decorated uchiwa (Japanese paper fans).
At Giverny, where he settled in 1883 at age 42, he built a Japanese bridge over a pond in Japan Japanese garden, and spent the rest of his work Paradise's private life – especially water lilies.
Not only Western art has been influenced by Japan, but, interiors, fashion and all forms of art, style and design. This exchange of ideas was a double meaning, with Western design concepts used in Japan. Such time for this reason, impressionism soon spread to Japan, and remains very popular.
This exchange of ideas has been, especially in porcelain produced by large kilns Japanese, with its ancient tradition of thousand years.
Until the opening of Japan to the West, porcelain and ceramics Japan was both traditional and high aesthetics understood only by a Japanese company then very insular and conservative. The main concept was to stick rigidly to the ways prohibited.
The aesthetic style was not understood by Western audiences and it soon became clear that amendments be made to an export market of the West to succeed. For example, the western market is very familiar with the Japanese "Imari porcelain" with its bright color palette, mostly on Red iron based and cobalt blue underglaze. This remains the basic palette of Imari, which may have added additional color range.
This Japanese Imari porcelain people call "by reason of the fact that has been exported from its various leaders around the port of" Imari ". These patterns of light, mainly by to a market in the west were in fact based on models of traditional kimono embroidered textiles.
