Tsuchida Bakusen

  • 作品1

    Still Life – Salmon Slices and Sardines1924 46.5×52.0 cm
    The painting was done right after the artist’s grand tour of Europe. The detailed still life reflects the influence of artists of the northern Renaissance. Bakusen’s painting style later came to resemble that of the flowers and birds painting style of the Sung and Yuan dynasties.

  • 作品2

    Hibiscus Manihot1932 152.0×69.5 cm
    The flowers favored by Bakusen are clear and fragrant, including the hibiscus manihot depicted here as well as mustard, peonies, morning glories, lotus, and chrysanthemum. This work is also soothing, and Bakusen's superlative grace floats over it.

作家写真

Tsuchida Bakusen

1887‐1936
Tsuchida Bakusen was born in Niigata Prefecture. He studied under Takeuchi Seiho after studying at Suzuki Shonen’s organization. After entering the Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting (Kyoto City Kaiga Sen-mon Gakko) in 1909, he began focusing on Western modern art. He sought for free expression of characteristics, and developed an avant-garde art movement. In 1918, he participated in establishing the Association for the Creation of New Japanese-style Painting (Kokuga Sosaku Kyokai). He pursued the harmony between Western paintings and Japanese decoration. In his later years, he created works that offer intelligent aesthetics and warm interiority.
