The Inagaki Brothers: Chusei & Toshijiro


INAGAKI Chūsei (c. 1919) <em>Cat</em>
INAGAKI Chūsei (c. 1919) Cat
Private collection
     INAGAKI Chūsei (1897–1922) entered the limelight by submitting Cat to the 2nd Kokuten Exhibition while he was still studying at the Kyoto Municipal Fine Arts College.  The work hinted at his future as a painter capable of expressing a sensual or even chilling quality within precise renditions of real-life subjects before passing away at the young age of 25.  His brother INAGAKI Toshijirō (1902–1963) established his name as a dye artist and was designated as a Living National Treasure in 1962.  The works by the two brothers will be exhibited together for the very first time in realization of Toshijirōs longtime dream.
