Periodical, Floral design from Bijutsukai, 1902
This is a Periodical.
These abstract patterns, inspired by simple floral designs, appeared in the 1902 issue of the Japanese periodical, Bijutsukai. Each issue—comprised solely of colorful woodblock prints by well-known Japanese painters of the day—was intended to provide traditional and innovative designs for textile artists, potters, and craftsmen worldwide.
