Description A large and very impressive Japanese embroidery tapestry from Meiji Period. Splendid silk embroidery in stunning technical detail depicts a lake scene nested between rocky hills. Pavilions near and far, stone lantern and wood bridge dot the landscape. The forest climbs the hill and is dense with pines, birches and willows. Cranes fly across the sky and perch by the edge of the water. The idyllic scenery was given a suggestion of fall with a touch of foliage turning red in the distance.
This embroidery tapestry is a force-de-force. Its large size, superb craftsmanship, complex composition with dimensional rendering, subtle shift of color and shades that brings out the light and shade, stillness and motion suggests that this piece may be an exposition piece for the west. In late Meiji period, Japanese government participated in many international expositions in both Europe and America by selecting the best crafts including many large textile pieces, with an attempt to promote the country's newly found images. Many pieces won awards an were purchased locally.
The textile panel is 36" x 53" in sigh and 41.25" x 58.5" with frame.
