Japanese Textiles: History, Type, Techniques
and Relevance in the Marketplace.

In this lecture, Diane Genre, AAA, will give
a brief history of Japanese textiles and the
centers of textile production. Diane will
explore the various ways that textiles were
used, from everyday life to ceremonial rituals.
Attendees will develop a basic knowledge of
identifying these items, as well as how they
came to the international market in the past
and how the current market views
and values the items.

As a business owner of Diane Genre Oriental Art & Antiques
since 1981, Diane has had a wide assortment of Chinese
and Japanese art and antiques pass through her hands.
Early on, Diane realized that she must enlarge her scholarship
in several areas, and became a Certified Member of
The Appraisers Association of America in 1987. Diane's interest
in Japanese textiles began when she first purchased her
first textile in 1985, and thus her collection began.
The collection now exceeds 300, and Diane has continued her
research in the field worldwide. Her book, "Re-envisioning
Japan: Meiji Fine Art Textiles", editor John Vollmer, features
pieces from Diane's private collection, and tells the story of the
history of the artists that create these textiles, including Diane's
story which encourages the exposure of these textiles to the world.
