ASIAN ART: Edo period prints from "tourist stops" to silk designs for kimono manufacturers. Highlighted here, Japanese woodblock prints depicting women of idealized beauty--a genre called "bijinga." These women, draped in voluminous robes and adorned with golden hair pins, are subtly revealing themselves to the viewer. Japanese woodblock printing remains a special part of not only Japan's artistic tradition, but the West's as well; impressionists like van Gogh, Monet, and Cassatt all incorporated elements of Japanese printmaking into their work. The enchanting "bijinga" remains an illuminating example of Japanese artistry, craftsmanship, and originality.
VINTAGE & ANTIQUE DECORATIVE ARTS: Art Pottery including artists Doreen Blumhardt and Matt Long, and original drawings of Newcomb Pottery designs; Stereoscope with collection of 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair views; Daguerreotype portraits; Advertising; Folk Art; Alabaster carvings; Dolls; Art Glass; and Silver.
