Hirai Baisen – 平井楳仙 (1889-1969) – 塔 – Temple Pagoda


Born and educated in Kyoto, Hirai-san went off the beaten path after art school. He spent some time painting in China and established a recognizable “bird’s eye view” approach to painting, becoming one of the new figures in “Nihonga”. In the first three decades of the last century, he was featured prominently in exhibitions. A more extensive biography can be read here. Some of his pieces in the Seattle Art Museum can be seen here. An extensive list of accomplishments in exhibition and photos of Hirai and his wife, Maki (tea ceremony – ikebana flower arrangement master) can be seen here. The last photo is another of the artist as a young man. Good condition (some light creases).
