Yukika Kamisaka (1866-1942) was a painter and painter active mainly in Kyoto from the Meiji era to the Showa period. At the dawn of the 20th century, by visiting the most advanced arts and crafts of the time in Europe Japan Yukika was reminded of the splendor of ancient decorative arts and devoted himself to the study of the "Rin school." Through the theme of the "Rin School," this exhibition reveals the essence of the wide-ranging activities of Yuka Kamisaka.
The origins of the Rin school date back to the early Edo period. Longing for the elegant beauty of the Heian Dynasty and aiming for its revival, new art has become an extraordinary art trend in the world, from the end of the shogunate to the modern era over time. Among them, the achievements of artists who colored the history of art such Japan as Mitsuetsu Motoami, Munetachi Baleya, Ogata Korin, Ogata Inuiyama, and Sakai Shoichi and Suzuki Keiichi are well known. Yukika Kamisaka, who appeared in Kyoto during the Meiji period, took a keen interest in the art of the Rin school, sympathized not only with their methods of expression but also with their attitude of activity, and put them into practice herself. Because of this way of being, it is also called "Modern Rin School, Kamisaka Yukika".
A major feature of Yukika's creative activities is that she provides designs that color her life and has made total coordination of the space. I have worked on a wide range of subjects, from the publication of highly practical design collections, to the design of crafts, the decoration of furnishings, and the production of paintings. In addition to building a style that is also called "The Return of Korin," he also worked hard to promote Kyoto industry and revitalize the craft world.
Under the supervision of the Hosomi Museum of Art in Kyoto, which is known for its attractive Rin school collection and has attracted attention and commended Yukika Kamisaka from an early stage, this exhibition will exhibit about 80 works, including paintings, drawings, and crafts, together with masterpieces such as Mitsuetsu Honami and Ogata Mitsurin, who show the beauty of the Rin school modeled by Yukika (some exhibitions will be changed during the exhibition). By fusing classical and modern ideas, you will enjoy the diverse world of "Modern Rin School, Kamisaka Yukika" that freely went back and forth between the two fields of art and design.
