History of Japanese Painting 3: Individuality in Modern Japanese Painting, 19C-20C

The painting featured is “Shoen Uemura: Jo-no mai,” 1936.

About This Event

This lecture will focus on individual painters who used the Nihon-ga technique including mineral pigments and glue from nature. After the Western Civilization and Enlightenment by the black ship’s Meiji Restoration in Japan, Japanese painters started to create their works based on their own experience. This western individualism idea influenced many artists nowadays in Japan. It is important to learn about these pioneer artists, and how their practice connected to their own matters.
