Why this is a
Masterpiece

Ikeda Taishin was a member of the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts and the imperial household. He was honored with the highest distinctions available to an artist.

History of the Object
Ikeda Taishin was a student and friend of Shibata Zeshin (1807–1891), the great innovator of Japanese lacquer art in a movement that attempted to combine new forms and techniques with traditional craftsmanship. This was seen as a way of establishing an autonomous art language to combat the westernization of the arts. Ikeda Taishin was successfully represented with several objects at the 1873 Vienna World Fair and as a result was regularly commissioned to take part in official presentations.
