KAKURE KIRISHITAN: The ‘Hidden Christians’ of Edo Japan

266 Christianity first appeared in Japan in the 16th century with the arrival of Navarrese missionary Francis Xavier (1506-1552). It quickly reached the higher strata of society, with Daimyo families such as the Satsuma clan joining the faith, partly to have access to imported goods (such as guns) Portuguese Jesuits were trading in. Christianity was fully banned from Japan by Tokugawa after the Shimabara rebellion of 1637-38 during which Christian peasants rebelled against the Shogunate. Other factors led to the ban, including the possible involvement of Portuguese Jesuits and suspicions that converts were spies for foreign powers. The edict outlawed the promulgation of and adherence to the religion. It also marked the beginning of a long period of anti-Christian persecutions that lasted for two and a half centuries. Sign boards such as lot 266 where set up all over the country, encouraging people to report Christians to the authorities for various financial rewards (500 pieces of silver for a priest, or 100 for an ordinary convert). Symbols and objects used for Christian worship were destroyed or desecrated. Lot 268 is an example of this iconoclasm, with the inscriptions to the sides of the incense burner erased to hide its original use. Christian practitioners who refused to renege their faith had to go into hiding and worship in secret. Figures of Kannon, the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy, and of Amida Buddha (lot 267) were adapted to resemble Christian iconography and become the central point of focus of hidden altars. Crosses and figures of Christ (lot 269) were hidden in ordinary objects such as this fake smoking pipe. After the Meiji restoration and the re-establishment of religious freedom, more than 30,000 secret Christians came out of hiding in the 1870s.

266 A JAPANESE WOOD SIGN BOARD, KOSATSU EDO PERIOD, DATED 1685 Of rectangular shape with a shallow-pitched roof, the wood left bare but for a long inscription in ink prohibiting the practice of Christianity and announcing rewards for the capture of Christians of various stature, with a signature for the Governor, Bugyo, and dated Jokyo ninen juichigatsu (November 1685), 47.3cm x 85.5cm.

£3,500-4,000 See the British Museum, access. no.1895,0721.1 for another notice board relating to the prohibition of Christianity dated 1682. Christianity was banned in the 1630s and these edict boards were visible all over Japan thereafter. Few of these survive, however, due to centuries of rain and wind damaging the wood.

267 A JAPANESE BRONZE CROSS WITH AMIDA NYORAI (AMIDA BUDDHA) EDO PERIOD OR LATER, 18TH CENTURY OR LATER The central figure seated on a lotus throne, his hands clasped together in a gesture of prayer, a circular mandorla behind him with fleur de lys-shaped ornaments, the cross with four quatrelobed apertures to the ends, 25.3cm.

£2,000-3,000 Provenance: formerly the Nose family Collection. The Nose family was a powerful Christian clan known to have built several churches in Japan, including one in the Maeda Domain. After the ban on Catholicism in the 1630s, Christians had to hide in order to worship and it is likely that the inscriptions which have been erased on the side of this koro referred to its original use for Christian rituals.

269 A RARE JAPANESE CHRISTIAN PIPE, KISERU EDO PERIOD, 18TH CENTURY The body in paulownia wood with removable gilt mounts, the stem in two halves opening to reveal the hidden depiction of Christ on the cross, together with a tomobako wood box, 15.7cm. (4)

£3,000-5,000 The pattée or patty cross is characterised by arms that are narrower at the centre. Objects made for Jesuit missionaries in Edo period Japan sometimes bear this symbol and so it is possible this saddle was made for a high-ranking convert.

271 A PAIR OF JAPANESE SILVER INLAID IRON AND LACQUER STIRRUPS, ABUMI EDO PERIOD, 17TH CENTURY Of typical form, decorated with flowering branches of peony inlaid in brass, shinchu hirazogan, and silver, nunome zogan, the inside with wood linings covered in red lacquer, both with a three character mark for Shigetami / Chomin saku, both 26cm. (2)

£1,500-2,000 Only high-ranking individuals could ride horses during the Edo period. This type of finely decorated stirrups became hugely popular then, when higher status warriors such as daimyos and their retinue would use them to reflect their social position.

278 SIX JAPANESE VOTIVE PAINTINGS, EMA EDO PERIOD OR LATER, 17TH CENTURY OR LATER Each in ink and colour with sprinkled gold on a square cryptomeria wood board, sugi, depicting individual portraits of famous poets from the Heian period (794-1185), each with a waka poem above, five in a mountainous landscape and the sixth with three chidori (plovers) flying above him, each panel 41.5cm x 42cm approx. (6)

£1,200-1,500 Provenance: a private English collection, acquired in London in the 1980s. These panels probably depict six of the ‘Thirty-six Immortal Poets’ of the Sanjurokkasen, a group of celebrated artists from the Heian Period. This list was compiled by the courtier Fujiwara no Kinto (996-1041) and celebrated the most famous waka poets of the time. These portraits of the poets, seated with their most famous verses above them, are known as Kasen-e and they were produced in large numbers as woodblock prints in the 12th century. See the British Museum, access. n. 1979,0305,0.3 for an album of woodblock prints by Tosa Mitsushige and Hon’ami Koetsu with similar depictions of the poets. This type of Ema votive paintings was very popular during the Kamakura Period (1185-1334) and Muromachi Period (1392-1568). Not many examples remain as they were usually displayed outdoors, exposed to the elements. They are still commonly used today to celebrate famous historical or legendary figures at Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. The poet Sugiwara no Michizane (845-903) in particular is closely connected to the concepts of scholarship and exam success and Ema with his portrait are still highly popular nowadays and can be seen in places such as the Tenmangu Shrine in Tokyo. The shrine also has a large display wall, the ema-sho, where a whole series of portraits of the Thirty-six Immortal Poets is on show.

308 A LARGE JAPANESE CLOISONNE ENAMEL PLAQUE IN THE STYLE OF ANDO JUBEI (1876-1953) MEIJI PERIOD, 19TH/20TH CENTURY Depicting a full moon on a dove-grey ground appearing from behind clouds, the scene subtly rendered in musen shippo (wireless) enamels, signed and with two red seal marks for Maruyama Okyo (1735-1795), the reverse with a pattern of V-shaped wires, 52cm x 36.6cm.

£2,000-3,000 Provenance: from the collection of Reverend Victor Farmer (1898-1977) and thence by descent. This large plaque features the complex technique of musen shippo or wireless cloisonné enamels. Developed by the artist Namikawa Sosuke and his Shippo Kaisha studio in the late 1870s, the wireless technique allowed artists to create soft pictorial effects such as this diaphanous night scene. Many other artists, including those of Ando Jubei’s studio, copied this style of cloisonné by using a variety of methods. One approach was to temporarily attach the wires and remove them once the enamel powders had been applied before firing. Another method was to hide wires under subsequent layers, and a third was to dissolve the wires with sulphuric acid and fill the gaps with a final layer. In all cases the enamels had to be ground flat several times to create a smooth surface for the next layer to be applied; this would have been a time-consuming and painstaking process. Cloisonné makers only rarely created grey monochromatic pieces and even fewer featured designs from Edo-period painters. Although this plaque doesn’t bear a mark for the cloisonné maker, it features the signature of the famous painter Maruyama Okyo (1735-1795). Okyo is commonly regarded as one of the greatest artists of 18th century Japan. Coming from a humble farming background, he made his way to Kyoto where he found work painting faces on dolls. Okyo then discovered optical devices featuring pictures with a European perspective, and from there grew his interest for Western paintings. His style developed to offer a unique marriage of Japanese aesthetics, traditional Chinese influence and Western naturalism. Okyo founded the influential Maruyama School of painting, encouraging his students to sketch from life, himself drawing nude figures in varying poses and superimposing clothes afterwards. His art grew enormously popular with the public and the Imperial court from which he would get many important commissions.

See Woolley & Wallis Salerooms, 14th November 2018, lot 1007, for a Myochin School articulated snake signed Muneyoshi from the same collection. Shachihoko are sea monsters believed to cause rain. They are often used as ornaments on Japanese rooftops to protect buildings against fire. When the Meiji restoration of 1868 forbade samurai from openly wearing swords, metalwork artists had to find alternative markets to avoid bankruptcy. Some turned towards producing everyday objects for the upper classes such as the Komai family, and others specialised in making okimono: ornaments for display. Jizai okimono are a subcategory of fully articulated metal sculptures, often depicting animals. A feat of ingenuity, this dragon fish’s lifelike appearance must have made it an attractive souvenir for a wealthy tourist in Japan at the turn of the century.

FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE LATE RICHARD NATHANSON Lots 400-412

Richard Nathanson Richard Nathanson began his career at Sotheby’s in 1966 and was immediately captivated by Impressionist and early 20th century art. He subsequently set up as an independent art advisor in that field, in which he became well respected and known, in particular for his involvement with the work of artists such as Sisley, Modigliani, Rouault, Bonnard and Albert Houthuesen. During his lifelong career in the art world, Richard expanded his expertise across time and space and gathered an extraordinarily eclectic collection of artworks which included classical, medieval, African, Asian and Oceanic pieces as well as folk art, natural forms and early toys. As he learnt more about these cultures and the art they inspired, his profound admiration for them grew, broadening his spiritual and philosophical outlook. He observed the intense affinities between these pieces, sometimes separated by millennia and thousands of miles and was fascinated by the conversations that arose between these various expressions of human experience. Richard felt that art had the ability to give hope and inspiration in the human quest for truth and beauty.

SOCIETY OF FINE ART AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS and the ROYAL INSTITUTION OF CHARTERED SURVEYORS CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION FOR BUYERS 1. Introduction. The following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed Conditions of Sale which are readily available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully understand. 2. Agency. As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller. 3. Estimates. Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. The lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. They are in no sense definitive. 4. The purchase price. The Buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon of 25% plus VAT @20% (totalling 30% inclusive) on the first £500,000 and 12% plus VAT @20% (14.4%) inclusive thereafter. 5. VAT. (†) indicates that VAT at the current standard rate is payable by the purchaser on the hammer price as well as being an element in the buyer’s premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due at 20% on importation into the UK. The symbol (Ω) indicates that the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of VAT (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the buyer’s premium). Lots which appear without either of the above symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price. This is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin Scheme and it should be noted that the VAT included within the Premium is not recoverable as input tax. 6. We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made. There is a 3 week time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our Conditions of Sale). 7. Electrical goods. These are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first. 8. Export of goods. Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required for the goods to leave the U.K. and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing the goods in question into the destination country because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Charges may be applicable for export licences. Ask us if you need help. The denial of any permit or licence shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment. 9. Bidding. Bidders will be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration form. Some form of identification will be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding.

10. Commission bidding. Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers’ premium. They will be executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. If two buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may prefer the first bid received. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for the leaving of commission bids by telephone or fax. 11. Methods of Payment. As a general rule any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of the goods is permitted. Please discuss with our Office in advance of the sale if other methods of payment are envisaged (except cash). 12. Collection and storage. Please note what the Conditions of Sale state about collection and storage. It is important that goods are paid for and collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying storage charges. TERMS OF CONSIGNMENT FOR SELLERS 1. Interpretation. In these Terms the words ‘you’, ‘yours’, etc. refer to the Seller and if the consignment of goods to us is made by an agent we assume that the Seller has authorised the consignment and that the consignor has the Seller’s authority to contract. Similarly the words ‘we’, ‘us’, etc. refer to the Auctioneers. 2. Commission is charged to sellers at the following rates: 15% + VAT on each lot sold for up to £999, 10% + VAT on each lot realising £1,000 and above. 3. Removal costs. Items for sale must be consigned to the sale room by any stated deadline and at your expense. We may be able to assist you with this process but any liability incurred to a carrier for haulage charges is solely your responsibility. 4. Loss and damage waiver. We are not regulated by the FSA for the provision of insurance to clients. However, we for our own protection assume liability for property consigned to us at lower pre-sale estimate. To justify accepting liability, we make a charge of 1.5% of the hammer price plus VAT or, if unsold, our mid estimate of the hammer price. If the owner of goods consigned instructs us in writing not to take such action, they then remain at owner’s risk unless and until the property in them passes to the Buyer or they are collected by or on behalf of the owner, and clause 4 is inapplicable. 5. Illustrations. The cost of any illustrations is borne by you. If we consider that the lot should be illustrated your permission will usually be asked first. The copyright in respect of such illustrations shall be the property of us, the auctioneers, as is the text of the catalogue. 6. Minimum bids and our discretion. Goods may be offered subject to a reserve agreed between us before the sale in accordance with clause 7. 7. We may sell lots below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale proceeds as you would have received had the reserve been the hammer price. If you specifically give us ‘discretion’ we may accept a bid of up to 10% below the formal reserve. Reserves. (a) You are entitled to place prior to the auction a reserve on any lot consigned, being the minimum hammer price at which that lot may be sold. Reserves must be reasonable and we may decline to offer goods which in our opinion would be subject to an unreasonably high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance charges stipulated in these Terms of Consignment). (b) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our consent. (c) Where a reserve has been placed only we may bid on your behalf and only up to the reserve (if any) and you may in no circumstances bid personally. 8. Electrical items. These are subject to detailed statutory safety controls. Where such items are accepted for sale you accept responsibility for the cost of testing by external contractors. Goods not certified as safe by an electrician (unless antiques) will not be accepted for sale. They must be removed at your expense on your being notified. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. 9. Soft furnishings. The sale of soft furnishings is strictly regulated by statute law in the interests of fire safety. Goods found to infringe safety regulations will not be offered and must be removed at your expense. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. The rights of disposal referred to in clause 8 and 9 are subject to the provisions of The Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977, Schedule 1, a copy of which is available for inspection on request.


10. Descriptions. Please assist us with accurate information as to the provenance etc. of goods where this is relevant. There is strict liability for the accuracy of descriptions under modern consumer legislation and in some circumstances responsibility lies with sellers if inaccuracies occur. We will assume that you have approved the catalogue description of your lots unless informed to the contrary. Where we are obliged to return the price to the buyer when the lot is a deliberate forgery under Condition 15 of the Conditions of Sale and we have accounted to you for the proceeds of sale you agree to reimburse us the sale proceeds. The liability to reimburse the sale proceeds shall not arise where you are acting reasonably and honestly and are unaware of the forgery but we are or ought to have been aware of it. 11. Unsold and withdrawn items. If an item is unsold it may with your consent be re-offered at a future sale. Where in our opinion an item is unsaleable you must collect such items from the saleroom promptly on being so informed. Otherwise, storage charges may be incurred. We reserve the right to charge for storage in these circumstances at a reasonable daily rate. 12. Withdrawn and bought in items. These are liable to incur a charge of up to 10% plus VAT of the reserve or low estimate on being bought in or withdrawn after being catalogued. 13. Conditions of Sale. You agree that all goods will be sold on our Conditions of Sale. In particular you undertake that you have the right to sell the goods either as owner or agent for the owner. You undertake to compensate us and any buyer or third party for all losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of this undertaking. 14. Authority to deduct commission and expenses and retain premium and interest. (a) You authorise us to deduct commission at the stated rate and all expenses incurred for your account from the hammer price and consent to our right to retain beneficially the premium paid by the buyer in accordance with our Conditions of Sale and any interest earned on the sale proceeds until the date of settlement. (b) You authorise us in our discretion to negotiate a sale by private treaty not later than the close of business on the day of the sale in the case of lots unsold at auction, in which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these terms apply. 15. Warehousing. We disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make minimum warehousing charge of £2 per lot per day. Unsold lots are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three weeks we reserve the right to sell them and defray charges from any net proceeds of sale or at your expense to consign them to the local authority for disposal. 16. Settlement. Subject to our normal trading conditions, payment will be made by BACS or cheque five weeks after the sale unless the buyer has not paid for the goods. In this case no settlement will then be made but we will take your instructions in the light of our Conditions of Sale. You authorise any sums owed by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition 10 above. You should therefore bear this potential liability in mind before parting with the proceeds of sale until the expiry of 28 days from the date of sale. CONDITIONS OF SALE

The seller acknowledges that lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the lot.

14. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION

In accordance with long standing practice in Fine Art Sale Rooms certain terms used in descriptions in the Catalogue have the meanings ascribed to them in the glossary below.

(a)

(b)

Any statement as to authorship, attribution, origin, date, age, provenance and condition is a statement of opinion and is not to be taken as a statement of fact. The Company reserves the right, in forming their opinion, to consult and rely upon any expert or authority considered by them to be reliable. Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by the artist. (When the artist’s forename(s) is not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not, indicates that in our opinion the work is by the artist named. Attributed to Edward Lear: In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainty as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category. Studio of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an unknown hand in the studio of the artist which may be or may not have been executed under the artist’s direction. Circle of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an as yet unidentified but distinct hand, closely associated with the named artist but not necessarily his pupil. Style of ...; Follower of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by a painter working in the artist’s style, contemporary or nearly contemporary, but not necessarily his pupil. Manner of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date. After Edward Lear: In our opinion a copy of a known work of the artist. The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are from the hand of the artist. The term bears a signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription have been added by another hand. Dimensions are given height before width. Pictures are framed unless otherwise stated.

(a) Whilst we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 ‘information to buyers’.

(c)

(b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation.

(j) (k)

15. FORGERIES

ARTIST’S RESALE RIGHT / DROIT DE SUITE

Droit de Suite is a royalty payable to a qualifying artist or the artist’s heirs each time a work is resold during the artist’s lifetime and up to a period of 70 years after the artist’s death.

Royalties are calculated on a sliding percentage scale based on the hammer price excluding the buyer’s premium. The royalty does not apply to lots selling below the sterling equivalent of €1,000 and the maximum royalty payable on any single lot is the sterling equivalent of €10,000.

Droit de Suite, which is not subject to VAT, will be added to the buyer’s purchase price and then passed on to the relevant collecting agency by the auctioneer.

Please enquire for the accepted exchange rate on the day of the sale.

Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale.

Woolley and Wallis valuations are accepted by all leading insurance companies. PROBATE VALUATIONS We offer a speedy and professional service for executors and trustees and provide bound valuations for probate and duplicate copies when required. Since security is often a consideration, we can usually arrange for a house to be cleared and sent for auction, our Valuations Department ensures that executors are informed of which sales are involved and the results thereof. We also carry out valuations for Family Division, Capital Gains Tax, and Private Treaty Sales. Contact Amanda Lawrence 01722 424509 FREE AUCTION VALUATIONS Free verbal valuations of items for sale are available at our Castle Street salerooms.
