[An untitled set of fan designs]
Inouye, Toshio [produced by].
Kyōto: Toshio Inouye, [ca. late Meiji to early Shōwa period (1900-20s)?].
A set of six hand-painted drafts for fan designs produced by "Toshio Inouye" of Kyoto (probably a fan shop or design studio). Four of the designs have been painted on fabric that is mounted on paper. The other two designs have been painted directly onto paper. The designs show Art Nouveau influences, and may have been created with a foreign market in mind.
Six loose hand-painted designs (four on fabric mounted on paper, two on paper). Mounting papers creased, with a few tears and general wear. Creases, handwritten notes (mainly about the colours to be used), and stamps to leaves. One handwritten note tipped-in. One piece of paper affixed to the face of one design, painted over by the artist. Paper backings measure approximately 24.3 x 39.4 cm; fan designs measure approximately 20 x 40 cm each at largest point.
