Description

A men's silk jacket in the Cubist style.

  • Japan was among the first Asian countries to be influenced by Cubism, which abandoned conventional perspective in favor of showing multiple viewpoints simultaneously as a way of suggesting three-dimensional form. It opened up nearly infinite possibilities for the treatment of visual reality, and was the influence for many later abstract styles including Constructivism and Futurism.
  • Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque forged a relationship that invented Cubism through their collaboration on collages beginning in 1907.
  • This haori, made with the Meisen technique, embraces these aesthetics and holds striking similarities between both Georges Braque's painting Cafe Bar 1919 and the design of the carpet in Radio City Music Hall by Ruth Reeves in 1932.
