Artwork Details

Title: Vase

Location: Japan

Materials: porcelain painted in underglaze blue

Dimensions: height 48.1 cm

Accession Number: P 77

Other Notes:

A porcelain jar painted in various shades of bright underglaze blue with an extensive landscape in moonlight; pine-trees in the foreground on a lake shore, further trees on the far shore, and mountains rising in mist in the distance.

This jar was exhibited at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900. The style of painting, very much in the Japanese Tradition contracts strongly with the European-influenced style of P 21, which is probably some ten years later in date. The shapes, too, reflect the differences in the extent of the European influence.
