Description

A women's silk kimono from the Taishō period.

  • When Art Deco was introduced to the world at the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris in 1925, this new style flourished in Japan in book design and illustration, applied arts and pattern designs. Illustrative material and art magazines brought back by Japanese artists studying in the West provided inspiration. In Japan, Art Deco took on another dimension, and the old designs seen in traditional crafts were fused with contemporary Western designs
  • This kimono’s architectural surface design reflects the Art Deco detail used on the most design-forward buildings of the era, such as The Mary A. Bowles Building by architect Douglas Dacre Stone in Oakland, CA from 1931, seen here.
