MEGURU vol.8 Highlights

● Zen Buddhist Art
Zen art has remained popular, both, in and out of Japan. In addition to the humorous paintings of Zen Buddhist monks, Hakuin Ekaku, Sengai Gibon, and disciples of Hakuin, such as Torei Enji, this auction offers a vast selection of paintings, calligraphy, and other works that convey Zen teachings.

● Bijin-ga
The Japanese painting genre, Bijin-ga emerged during the Edo period with the popularization of ukiyo-e paintings. Initially, these consisted of paintings of courtesans, but in modern times, they came to depict the beauty of women in ordinary life. From the works of female painters, such as Uemura Shoen, who modernized Bijin-ga from Maruyama school painting to Ito Shinsui, who followed the Utagawa school ukiyo-e style, this MEGURU offers coveted paintings, primarily, from the Meiji era onwards.

● Otomaru Kodo
The Living National Treasure and lacquer artist, Otomaru Kodo was born in 1898 in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, and studied Sanuki carving under Ishii Keido. He later studied the art of engraving lacquer and used colored lacquers to create a variety of expressions, expanding the scope of lacquer art, developing his own distinct style while maintaining the use of traditional craft techniques. His influence on the world of craft remains, and his works continues to attract people even today.

● Hayashi Kiichiro
Hayashi Kiichiro is a Western-style painter who continued to paint old private houses with thatched roofs throughout his life. “One Hundred Views of Lost Private Houses” covers 30 years of his trips nationwide. Expressed in a unique technique rich in elegance and realism, his style rediscovers the Japanese landscapes that are now fast disappearing.
