Mikuruma-gaeshi ~ Vintage Japanese Watercolor Postcard
Mikuruma-gaeshi ~ Vintage Japanese Watercolor Postcard
A beautiful watercolor painting of Cherry Blossoms 1918 titled Mikuruma-gaeshi (Cart Turning Back). Mikuruma refers to a vehicle used to transport important dignitaries and courtiers. The meaning of this sakura variety’s name can be interpreted in different ways, perhaps suggesting the passenger was compelled to return to view the beautiful sakura. Japanese painting (絵画 kaiga?) is one of the oldest and most highly refined of the Japanese visual arts, encompassing a wide variety of genres and styles. As with the history of Japanese arts in general, the long history of Japanese painting exhibits synthesis and competition between native Japanese aesthetics and adaptation of imported ideas. A watercolor is the medium or the resulting artwork in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle. The traditional and most common support for watercolor paintings is paper; other supports include papyrus, bark papers, plastics, vellum or leather, fabric, wood, and canvas. Credit: Wikipedia

At The Vintage Vamp we obtain high quality images of vintage artwork. Then we use state of the art technology and editing to bring back to life the most compelling images from the past. Unlike a lot of reproductions sold on the Internet, ours have been refurbished to bring out the original colors and fix as many imperfections as possible. We use only PNG format and the largest PPI (pixels per inch) possible, which is the very best for printing. This assures that your image will print with the highest quality possible, no matter what size you choose. Credit: Library of Congress
