The book "Japanese Cloisonne: The Seven Treasures" — Грегори Ирвин

Japanese Cloisonne: The Seven Treasures.

Традиции нанесения эмалевого декора на металлическую основу пришла в Японию из Китая в конце XVI в. Техника эмалей имела 4 разновидности: перегородчатая (клуазонэ - см. ниже), выемчатая, гравированная и расписная. Эмали называли «сипло» - семь драгоценностей: золото, серебро, изумруд, коралл, алмаз, агат, жемчуг, которые по поверьям приносили людям счастье. Японские перегородчатые эмали XVII-XVIII вв., во много опирающиеся на китайские образцы, отличались ограниченной палитрой слегка приглушенных тонов, четким геометрическим узором, глубоким темно-зеленым фоном. В середине XIX в. техника эмали пережила второе рождение. Были получены многокрасочные блестящие эмали, которые плотно приклеивались к металлической основе и хорошо поддавались шлифовке.

    The production of Japanese cloisonne enamels had, by the end of the 19th century, become one of the country's most successful forms of manufacture and export. Using examples drawn from two superb collections, this book examines the techniques and social history behind the craft. The introduction draws on examples from the Victoria and Albert Museum to chart how cloisonne enamelling developed in Japan and is followed by a catalogue of the collection of Edwin Davies, O. B. E. This collection includes enamels produced in the "Golden Age" of production, around 1880 to 1910, but also includes cloisonne objects made in the last twenty years. Newly commissioned photography, with rich close-up detail, shows the artistry of these pieces.

    Artists such as Namikawa Yasuyuki and Namikawa Sosuke, and factories such as the Ando Company became renowned for their technical and artistic innovations. Craftsmen worked experimentally, moving away from what is traditionally thought of as cloisonne work to pieces which reproduced the effects of porcelain or painting. Where possible, signatures of the makers are shown alongside their objects. As well as being a showcase for beautiful examples of cloisonne work, this book shows how the interaction between East and West played a key role in production. The craft of cloisonne enamelling grew from long established traditions of Japanese metalwork but was expanded further with the help of western technical expertise and demand was stimulated by the strong export market.

    It has been the continuing popularity and appreciation of the craft in the west that has lead to its re-evaluation in Japan and the increasing acknowledgement of its importance for understanding Japan's artistic traditions. This book will serve as a timely introduction to the full range of Japanese cloisonne enamels, as well as revealing to collectors and scholars treasures from two outstanding collections.
