What is the origin of the Lacquer technique?
Painting made using a resin derived from sap, various shrubs or using lacquer paints based on thermosetting resins. The technique consists of overlaying the layers of lacquer with a vigorous polishing between each layer. It is most often smooth glossy appearance, but can sometimes also be satin or very matte. Lacquer is a term used to describe a resin made from the sap of various shrubs that forms a solid coating when dried (Japanese varnish or urushi-e), or objects made from it. By extension, certain glossy and smooth paints are also qualified as lacquer, although this substance is not or little used in their preparation. Of Asian origin (mainly China and Japan), this technique translates into different production methods: we distinguish between sculpted lacquers, decorated lacquers (togidashi decor, hiramaki-e decor or takamaki-e decor) or even burgaute lacquer ( inlaid with mother-of-pearl). The most illustrious craftsmen of this technique are in China: Chen Ching, Huang Xia Wu or Lao Wei; in Japan: Kano Naonobu, Naga Shige or Zechin; and in Europe: Gérard Dagly, Eileen Gray, Jean Dunant, Gaston Suisse or Frédéric Halbreich.
