Transcript of It's More than Just a Fan

It's More than Just a Fan By: Jasmine Sawaged 18th Century Fans 1) Europe imorted fans from China
2) Every level of society can now access fans
3) Most 18th century fans only form a 1/3rd or 3/8th circle
4) The sticks are about 28-30 cm long, rarely shorter (25-26 cm) or longer (up to 32 cm)
5) The sticks were made of wood, mother of pearl, tortoiseshell or ivory
6) During the 18th century, the majority of the fans only depicted people and landscapes
7)The rivet that holds the fan together is often set with a rhinestone or gem
8) Only during a short period around 1750, half-circle fans were a bit more frequent, often with quite ornately painted and carved sticks
9)There were folding and brisé fans. Brisé fans were common until about 1730, then rare until 1800/1810
10) French fans were so popular that they were smuggled into Europe during the 18th century
11) The folding fan was the most popular in Europe during the 18th century, a time known as the golden age of the folding fan. The principal folding fan styles are pleated, brisé, and cockade. Resources:

Stick length 29,5 cm Brisé fan, early 18th century MY FAN Decoré mi abanico de esta manera porque es divertido y lleno de color. Las tiras de patrón se asemeja sabor español. La pintura me recuerda el arte mexicano de colores. El color de rojo y amarillo me recuerdan a méxico. Creo que los abanicos deben ser vibrante y divertida de ver. The fan was a cooling sntrument and communication device. Mainly, the fan transmitted secret love messages. A long time ago, the language of the fan was universal, famous and popular; now, however, this interesting language has been completley forgotton.

A woman can tell a man whatever she wants without words, that's why the Langage of the Fan became so popular. These signals and messages were between two people, and private. For example, by resting the fan on her heart, she can ransmit the message: "My love for you is breaking my heart." Or by placeing the fan in her right hand in front of her face, she may tell the man, "Follow me."

There are a variety of messages someone can tell another with just a fan. The Language of the Fan Uses of the Fan: Communication Gestures Both are touching their folded fans to their right cheeks, a gesture that meant, "Yes." Open fan at rest, "Wait for me." Open fan in right hand, "Come and talk to me." POEM Abanico
