Ozeki Keishu – 尾関圭舟 (1883-1963) – Kachō-ga – 花鳥画

Born in Nagoya, Ozeki-san was a student of Hibino Hakkei. One of his successes was being selected for the Tokai Art Exhibition in China. One of his last awards was a silver at the Gifu Art Exhibition. After WWII, Ozeki-san practiced an ancient style that used 3 large areas of negative space to break up different levels of landscape or other subject matter. Not only was this effective in creating a feeling of spaciousness, it allowed him to save money on paint. The importance of saving money as an artist after the war, when so many people were starving and dying of dysentery can not be understated. He also saved money by carving his own name stamp and mixing his own pigment for it. These practices lasted for many years until his financial stability allowed him to be more liberal with his supplies. Normal, good condition (light creases, small stains, ageing and light foxing, but still enjoyable – if you are unsure of it’s condition, please message me for additional photos or a video chat). The ancient symbolism makes it auspicious for beautiful song or beautiful voice as well as inner calm. *After clicking on a picture, click the top left corner again to expand the images.
