Victoria and Albert Museum. The world's leading museum of art and design. Japanese Art & Design - Line

As the world's leading museum of art and design, the V&A enriches people's lives by promoting the practice of design and increasing knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the designed world.

Japanese Art & Design

Line is used to make all-over decorative pattern and for borders. Objects display a striking variety of patterns made up of straight lines used as: straight lines of different thicknesses; straight lines separated by gaps of varying width; horizontal, vertical or diagonal lines crossing; straight lines crossing to make rectangles; straight lines crossing to make zigzags. A thick outline is often combined with thinner internal lines when depicting people in prints, and flower motifs on objects. This separates the subject from the background and gives solidity and definition to the shape.
