Araki Kanpo – 荒木寛畝 (1831~1915) – Egret – 白鷺

$1,400.00 CAD

Araki Kanpo was quite an important painter in his day, so although there is some toning, small stains and small damages, this is still a piece of art worthy of an investment that will continue to appreciate. In the early Meiji Period, Kanpo started to incorporate Western painting techniques and began studying oil painting with Kawakami Togai (1827-1881) and Kunisawa Shinkuro (1847-1877). He became successful as an oil painter and was given the honor of painting a portrait of the Empress Dowager. He later returned to Nihonga and won many prizes for his work, including a silver medal at the Tokyo Prefecture Crafts Competition in 1887; 2nd place at the 3rd Domestic Industrial Exposition in 1890; as well as many other prizes at the Japan Art Association over the years. He also won awards at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893; the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900; and the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. In 1898 when Hashimoto Gahō left the Tokyo School of Fine Arts he became their professor of painting. In 1900 he was made an Imperial Household Artist and from 1907 was a judge at the Bunten exhibition.
