Spring Evening, 1937 by Takehisa Yumeji (1884 - 1934)

Original Takehisa Yumeji (1884 - 1934) Japanese Woodblock Print
Spring Evening, 1937

Takehisa Yumeji - Takehisa Yumeji was a leading artist and illustrator in Japan during the Taisho era. His romantic portraits of contemporary young women were extremely popular, and he designed many woodblock prints for newspapers, women's magazines, and book covers. His slender, languid women are drawn with expressive line work, and sometimes have a naive, almost childlike quality. Yumeji's work found an enthusiastic following in Japan, and today, there is a museum devoted to him in Okayama, his birthplace. While there was little foreign interest in his work prior to his death in 1934, in subsequent decades Yumeji's prints have become very popular and highly sought after by collectors. 

Kato Junji Prints of Yumeji's Works - After Yumeji's death in 1934, Kato Junji of Tokyo published many woodblock prints based on the artist's earlier paintings and illustrations. These prints beautifully capture the color and spirit of Yumeji's original works, which are difficult to find.
