Japanese Large Imari Hand Painted Blue Porcelain Vase by Master Artist, 2018


Unique exceptional Japanese contemporary large Imari porcelain vase, a signed masterpiece by a second-generation master porcelain artist of the Imari-Arita region of Japan. It is intricately hand painted in brilliant colors on a large beautiful ovoid body, This striking piece draws its inspiration from Nanban-byobu, 17th and 18th century folding screens depicting the arrival of Portuguese traders and missionaries at the southern port city of Nagasaki. The paintings convey the awe and amusement that these first European visitors with their colorful clothes and exaggerated facial features inspired in the Japanese. The artist is widely recognized for his portrayal of historical scenes and themes combined with intricate geometric patterns and is the recipient of prestigious awards for his unique porcelain work. This Imari porcelain vase features three round panels that showcase scenes from Portuguese missions walking in traditional Japanese settings. An intricate honeycomb pattern in shades of blue connects the three panels and continues to the rim and base of the vase. This exquisite contemporary hand painted porcelain vase comes in a custom made wooden box signed by the artist. Dimensions: H 12.5 in D 12.25 in.
