Mouse and Top Hat by Takeuchi Seiho (1864 - 1942)

Original Takeuchi Seiho (1864 - 1942) Japanese Woodblock Print
Mouse and Top Hat

Takeuchi Seiho - Considered one of the founders of modern Japanese painting, Takeuchi Seiho initially studied with the Maruyama-Shijo school in Kyoto. After traveling in Europe in 1900 - 1901, he incorporated Western techniques into his style, creating a unique and harmonious synthesis of Western and traditional Japanese art. An influential teacher, he established his own private school and also taught at the Kyoto Municipal College of Painting. Sketching from life, Seiho beautifully captured the essence of the landscapes, animals, and plants that he depicted. This highly gifted and innovative artist received the first Order of Cultural Merit award from the Japanese government in 1937.

Comments - Charming, large format image of a mouse looking into a top hat tilted on its side. A bold design with the black hat dominating the composition and creating a handsome contrast with the delicate, painterly washes on the mouse. From a limited edition of 300, published by Unsodo in Showa 5 (1930). One of Takeuchi Seiho's most famous designs and a great subject.
