Description

A men's silk jacket mimicking stained glass.

  • Georges Rouault (1871-1958) first trained as a glass painter, which is probably the source of his paintings’ similarity to leaded glass with their black contours and glowing colors.
  • This haori is made in the labor-intensive and highly esteemed shibori technique.
  • Although made in relatively modern times, works from important 20th-century artists remain an inspiration and continue to influence textile artists in Japan, the similarities which can be seen with Rouault's Verlaine with the Virgin from 1949, pictured here.
