UEMURA Shoen


《Maijitaku》1914
UEMURA Shoen, Maijitaku (1941)
The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto
  Japanese-style painter Uemura Shoen (1875-1949) preferred motifs such as ordinary people as well as characters in history or yokyoku (Noh songs). She put strong affections into persons in her paintings, but at the same time maintained stern distance from them to produce graceful, sometimes somewhat rigorous portraits throughout her career. This exhibition presents about 100 masterpieces to explore the essence of Shoen's art.
