Japanese Satsuma Vase Yabu Meizan Meiji

$ 9,000
  • Description
    A Satsuma baluster form vase from the studio of Yabu Meizan (birth name Yabu Masashichi; 1853-1934), who is one of the most celebrated and collectible Satsuma artists from Meiji Period. From his studio in Osaka, Yabu Meizan oversaw the production of the finest Satsuma wares for both domestic and export markets. He participated many international exposes at the turn of the 20th century and won numerous awards for his creation.
    This vase is relatively large by Yabu Meizan standard, and the composition indicates that it was made during his later period when he no longer favored extremely dense design, but more nature-oriented still life scene instead of human activities. The exterior of the vase was beautifully draped with maple branches in the fall season. Shimmering leaves in shades of red and gold are literally turning colors in front of the viewer's eyes. Two small birds perched among the leaves, half hidden, waiting for the discovery by the curious. The composition is poetic along the tradition of the ink painting that is stylized to focus on the ambience. The refined and extremely detailed painting contrasts beautifully with the empty spaces intentional left. More is more and less is more, both are true perhaps on this piece?
    The base is marked with the golden seal of Yabu Meizan.
