Turquoise Watercolor Daydreams Vintage Kimono Silk 6.5" x 34" #4271
Watercolor leaves with highlights of an unusual jacquard that creates the illusion of more layers of paint. This art silk is calm; a meditation on nature; many levels of pastel turquoise and peach, some mottled; a few nearly transparent indigo leaves with the jacquard shining through. All colors are softened and diluted. Liquid drape silk is supple, soft, slightly shiny, handpainted. We are guessing it's from the 1940's. It is in perfect condition from its former life as a kimono. Japan.
