Japanese Porcelain Vase Meiji Period Makuzu Kozan

$ 6,000
  • Description
    A finely decorated and glazed Japanese porcelain vase by Makuzu Kozan (1842-1916) circa 1900s Meiji Period. The vase is of a classic bottle form with baluster body and short neck. It was decorated with underglaze white magnolia blossom on a pleasant celadon background. The stamens of the flower were artistically rendered in a low relief, giving the design a realistic appeal with the dimension.
    Miyagawa Kozan (1842–1916) was one of the most established and collected Japanese ceramist from Meiji Period. Commonly known as Makuzu Kozan, which also appears as the signature on his work, his originally birth name was Miyagawa Toranosuke. He was the appointed artist to the Japanese Imperial household and his work was exhibited in many international fairs that the Meiji government participated at the turn of the century. Technical development around 1900s in Kozan studio by using new chemicals from the West, the studio was able to create works in nontraditional palette. The more stylized design took its cues from the new painting trend at the time with a more realistic yet poetically Japanese manner. The masterly details of the brush strokes, the expertly employment of gradient of color, created an image that is of signature work from Kozan studio.
    The vase is signed in blue script within a square seal, made by Makuzu Kozan.
