    JAP BONSEKI (BC)
    Description:

    Rare early C19th century Japanese Bonseki watercolour designs. 

    Fukuro toji binding (stitched), Ōbon (large size), with pasted title at top left of the cover, 34pp, 10 colour watercolours, 22 ink drawings and 2pp blank.

    Bonseki like its counterpart Bonsai is the ancient Japanese art of creating miniature landscapes on trays.

    'Bonseki is a realistic expression of natural landscape scenery that approaches idealism', Chubachi Yoshiaki

    Bon means tray and in Bonseki a black lacquer tray is used on which white sand, pebbles, and small rocks are delicately placed to create landscapes. Small tools are used, such as feathers, small flax brooms, sifters, spoons and wood wedges. The trays are either oval or rectangular, measuring about 60 by 35 centimeters in size.

    Description:

    Fine colour woodblock of a kimono design. Very contemporary design and brilliant colours.

    A colour woodblock requires a separate block for every colour. A simple subject by Japanese standards would usually use up to nine different blocks. A key block would be cut first, giving the outlines of the image drawn by the artist, then for each different colour a separate block would be carved by removing all the unwanted surface leaving the design or area to be printed higher. Each separate block would be inked with the chosen colour and the woodblock design printed in black outlines would be registered onto each of these separate blocks to have the individual colours printed onto it.
