But Japanese and Chinese paintings on silk or rice paper aren’t only a delight for the eye, they have an incredibly long history as well.
Chinese Paintings on Silk: a Short History
Silk paintings are an art form with more than 2000 years of history which originated in China and preceded the invention of paper. Silk was ideal for painting, compared to wood, bamboo, or stone of that time, because it was easy to cut to size, light to carry, and it was a luxurious material. From China, the art of silk painting spread to Central Asia and only in the 12th century did it reach Europe.
Silk paintings were originally used for calligraphy paintings in Ancient China. Over the years, the art developed and artisans started painting human figures, religious and mystical characters, and landscapes. Silk paintings look similar to watercolour because the ink can flow freely on the silk, which creates a soft and diffuse artwork.
Chinese and Japanese Paintings on Rice Paper
Besides the opulent silk paintings, you can find Japanese and Chinese paintings on rice paper in our webshop. Rice paper originated at the beginning of the Tang dynasty and gained popularity as painting material onwards. The Japanese and Chinese paintings made on rice paper have a similar look to watercolour paintings as well.
More Than Japanese and Chinese Paintings: Oriental Wall Art
In our collection of oriental paintings and wall art, you can find special pieces from Thailand. These wall decorations include wooden panels depicting buddhas that are hand-carved by Thai craftsmen. There is also sustainable wall art made of real lotus leaves. You can find these in different colours such as blue tints and reds. These oriental wall decorations will certainly add an earthy oriental vibe in your home.
Other Japanese and Chinese Paintings in Our Collection: Giclée Prints
You might be thinking, ‘What are giclée prints?’. Giclée (pronounced in English as “zhee-clay”) is a French term which means to spray and is the only fine art print to be made with an inkjet printer. What makes giclée prints so valuable is the fact that archival ink and materials are used to print. Our giclée prints are printed by using high-quality archival ink and canvas, such that the longevity of the printed artworks can be guaranteed.
At Orientique you can find high-quality and stunning giclée prints of famous paintings, such as Starry Night by Van Gogh, Waterlilies by Monet, and The Kiss by Klimt. What makes our giclée prints exceptional is the fact that finishing touches are added by hand. This way, the elements of the reproductions really pop out and in a way, you have a print that is truly one of a kind.
