Japanese Antique Two Panel Screen Hand Spun Tsutsugaki Wall Art, 19th Century

About

From our recent Japanese acquisitions travels- great wall art A beautiful two panel screen created from a well-preserved futon cover tsutsugaki made of heavy cotton with the auspicious images of a large phoenix, turtle, sakura, scholar rocks, and bamboo in vivid colors on characteristic indigo ground (boro furoshiki). The pattern of the image has been made by applying a traditional stencil resist dye process known as katazome. The cotton piece has been sewn together lengthwise. Late Meiji, circa 1900–1912. Fine quality. This is a fine Japanese 19th century hand spun, indigo dyed tsutsugaki hand drawn and crafted in the Shonai district of the Meiji period. Tsutugaki were free hand drawn using resist methods to make. Special bedding covers, futon-ji like this one were often given as coveted wedding gifts and were often considered part of a bride's dowry. Fine quality ones like this example, were typically owned by wealthy families and used as futon covers. The free-hand resist technique is drawn with a "tsutsu" (much like a pastry cone) and creates a much more lively image than can be attained by stencil dyeing. Photographed in natural day llght. Dimensions: 70.5 inches by 54.5 inches It is immediately and eminently displayable. Photographed in natural light. Provenance: old Northern Kyoto collection History of Tsutsugaki, a Japanese technique of resist dyeing that involves drawing rice-paste designs on cloth, dyeing the cloth, and then washing off the paste. The rice paste is typically made from sweet rice, which has a high starch content and is therefore rather sticky. The paste is applied through a tube (the tsutsu) similar to the tubes which are used by bakers to decorate cakes. A related process is to apply the paste through a stencil; that is called katazome. The cloth is typically cotton, and the dye is typically indigo, so the design is usually white on blue. Banners for shops or other purposes are sometimes made in this manner.
