Zen art has remained popular, both in and out of Japan. In addition to humorous paintings by Zen Buddhist monks, Hakuin Ekaku, Sengai Gibon, and followers of Hakuin such as Torei Enji, this auction features a wide selection of paintings, calligraphy and other works conveying the Zen teachings.

● Bijin-ga
The genre of Japanese painting, Bijin-ga, emerged during the Edo period with the popularization of ukiyo-e paintings. Initially these were paintings of courtesans, but in modern times they have come to represent the beauty of women in ordinary life. Based on the works of women painters, such as Uemura shoen, who modernized Bijin-ga from Maruyama school painting to Ito Shinsui, which followed the ukiyo-e style of Utagawa school, this MEGURU features coveted paintings, mainly, from the Meiji era.

He then studied the art of lacquer engraving and used colored lacquers to create a variety of expressions, expanding the scope of lacquer art, developing his own style while retaining the use of artisan techniques. traditional. His influence on the craft world remains and his works continue to attract people to this day.
