Bronze vase by Nakajima Yasumi II 二代中島保美

Price:  1.100,00

Exceptionally shaped bronze vase with a striking ‘coarse’-textured red mottled patina. The bowl subtly shaped like a flower, its slightly concave body flanked by ‘butterfly wing’-shaped ears, transcending in a circular foot with a broad shoulder.

Sealed at the bottom by the artist Nakajima Yasumi II 二代中島保美 (1905-1986). Three generations of the Yasumi family were active in Osaka as metal artists, their vases favoured the richly coloured purple-red bronze.
The vast majority of ‘Yasumi’-vases are designed and made by the incredibly creative and versatile second generation of the family. He was a member of the All Japan Decorative Art Association and regularly exhibited at the annual Japan art exhibition Nitten, where he was awarded several prizes.
