About this deal

The Belgian painter Alfred Stevens was one of the earliest collectors and enthusiasts of Japanese art in Paris.

The Turner Japanesque selection of 69 beautiful, sophisticated tones are formulated with fine powders which give a unique, slightly textured finish. p>

It is preferable to use metal, disposable or porcelain palettes, as dry paint may adhere persistently to wooden or plastic palettes. They were not without lasting effect, however, and the geisha had established herself among the scrolls, jade, and images of Mount Fuji that signified Japan to the West. Vincent started to use complementary colours, but he continued to mix them, resulting in ‘muddy tones’.Worth noting: Often, when you hear people talk about traditional Japanese colors, they’re referring to one of two things: the first is colors that were traditionally available to Japanese painters and artisans to dye clothes, make pottery, or otherwise create items that would have been commonly seen in ancient and medieval Japan. In courtship too, love poems were dyed to match the mood of the season and tied to sprigs of blossom or willow. During the late 19th century, Whistler began to reject the Realist style of painting that his contemporaries favored.

He realized several portraits of young women dressed in kimono, and Japanese elements feature in many other paintings of his, such as the early La Dame en Rose (1866), which combines a view of a fashionably dressed woman in an interior with a detailed examination of Japanese objects, and The Psyché (1871), wherein on a chair there sit Japanese prints, indicating his artistic passion. Green-leaved or variegated Japanese maples turn more brilliant, varied colors over a longer period of time. Even a plain-Jane unnamed seedling Acer palmatumcan supply green, yellow, pink, purple, and orange-red color in fall.Robbed of its local garb and mannerisms, the Japanese method reveals aesthetic principles applicable to the gardens of any country, teaching, as it does, how to convert into a poem or picture a composition, which, with all its variety of detail, otherwise lacks unity and intent. Rather than laying them down side by side, however, pure and more or less unblended, he mixed them, with the result that the colour contrast is not as powerful.

An emphasis on diagonals, asymmetry, and negative space can be seen in the works of Western artists who were influenced by this style. If polychrome, the pigments are derived from natural ingredients: minerals, shells, corals, and even semi-precious stones like malachite, azurite and cinnabar.Modern art in Paris encouraged Vincent to adopt a lighter, brighter and looser painting style, like that of the Impressionists. As a result, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston now claims to house the finest collection of Japanese art outside Japan. The blend of traditions evolved into a distinct Japanese industry with styles such as Imari ware and Kakiemon.

Kōkan created one of the first etchings in Japan which was a technique he had learned from one of the imported treatises.He also fell under the spell of the ‘Pointillists’ (originally a term of abuse) who painted with colourful dots. Higasayama’ has multi-color leaves that emerge in a unique white and green checkerboard pattern with accents of pink.
