1939 Japanese Art Deco Okimono Figure of a Bull by Hiramatsu Koshun

$1,800Asking Price

About

This enameled iron sculpture of a bull by Hiramatsu Koshun has a substantial feel, and a lovely patina which contrasts nicely with the futuristic contours of the figure. A fine example of Japanese Art Deco, a similar example from the Levenson Collection was exhibited in 2012 (Deco Japan: Shaping Art and Culture, 1920-1945) at the Japan Society in New York. The paring down of recognizably "bullish" details to the bare minimum is handled with great skill and style. It's a beauty.
