NEW YORK, NY.- Bonhams announced the Fine Japanese Works of Art auction on September 16, which will feature a selection of fine Meiji period art from the esteemed Ruth and Carl Barron Collection.

The Barrons were enthusiastic art collectors who sought works by top Meiji craftsmen across a variety of disciplines. A highlight from their extensive Satsuma collection is a vase and cover by Yabu Meizan (est. $18,000-25,000). Painted in polychrome enamels and gilt on a clear crackle glaze, it features six vertical panels with scenes of armor makers, children at play, scenes of Lake Biwa, and birds hovering over wisteria and cherry blossoms trees. The intricate enamel work on the ovoid vessel is very impressive given that it is 4 ¾ inches tall.

Also featured in the sale is an exquisite pair of cloisonné enamel vases by the workshop of Namikawa Yasuyuki (est. $40,000-60,000). The surfaces display a blend of blue and white enamels and gold wire work, depicting scenes bathed in moonlight. On one vase is Kinkakuji Temple and a pond nestled in the woods and on the other a rustic landscape with a thatch-roofed cottage near a meandering stream in both musen and standard cloisonné enamel techniques.

Another highlight is a fine gold lacquer writing box from the Taisho period estimated at $30,000-40,000. In several shades of gold and mother-of-pearl, the box is decorated with a classical scene of Uji bridge with weeping willows, rock baskets, a water wheel and stylized waves and clouds.

“Farmhouse at Night, Tyringham,” a 1905 oil painting on canvas by one of the greatest artists of the shin-hanga style, Hiroshi Yoshida, will also be featured (est. $18,000-25,000). Yoshida traveled widely and was known to have been heavily influenced by his exploration of the United States. One of his favorite locations was the Berkshire Mountains in western Massachusetts. While there he produced this painting of a farmhouse at dusk. The canvas depicts a close-up of the entrance to the farmhouse with a darkening sky overhead, the front door is wide open and the candle-lit interior glows invitingly.
