Kumagai Naohiko (1828-1913)
Japanese painter of the late Edo and Meiji periods.
Born in Kyoto in 1828.
His real family name was Yamamoto. The pseudonym is Tokumasa.
Studied painting of the Shijo School under Okamoto Shigehiko.
Became a member of the Imperial Household Artists in 1904.
He died in 1913 at the age of 86.
A word from the store
This figure depicts a high priest quietly reading a book in a house in a plum grove. The artist, Kumagai Naohiko, is a painter in the vein of Okamoto Toyohiko.
He was also selected as a member of the Imperial Household Artists.
The Imperial Household Artist was an honorary position that lasted from 1890 until 1944, when the system was abolished.
The system was established to protect and encourage Japanese artists and craftsmen amidst the stagnation of traditional Japanese culture following the Meiji Restoration.
The main duties of the Imperial Household Artists were to produce works of art and crafts for the Imperial Household by imperial order and to consult with the Director General of the Museums.
During the 55 years until the abolition of the system, 79 artists in various fields were appointed.
The same Japanese-style painters who became Imperial Household Artists included Bairei Kono, Kansai Mori, and Chikudo Kishi.
The amazing thing about this painting is that he painted various types of lines without redoing them: the bold lines of the rock face in the foreground, the smooth curves of the river, the rhythmic dots of the plum grove, the gentle lines of the distant mountains, and so on.
And all while thinking about gradation.
Suiboku-ga cannot be redone.
I am amazed at the skill of the artists of that time.
The front cover is also still the same high quality silk cloth of the time, with a glossy sheen.
The tip of the scroll has also become a brownish hue over time, which gives the painting a certain elegance.
We hope you will enjoy Naohiko's gentle atmosphere and her solid painting skills.
