Yumeji Takehisa (1884 – 1934)

Although still popular in Japan to this day, with even a museum dedicated to him, Yumeji Takehisas work is only seldom seen on western art blogs. Personally I admire his work very much: it looks like an aesthetically pleasing mix between ukiyo-e prints, Nihonga painting and early western modernism. The art by Takehisa is poetic on many levels probably because he was a poet in his early life and ‘only’ a self thought painter and printmaker.
