Item Details
Description
WATANABE OSAO (1874-1952)
A bronze okimono of three puppies
The single okimono depicting three puppies with floppy ears and eyes expressing various degrees of sleepiness pile upon one another, signed Osao saku with a kao on bottom
6 3/4 x 11 1/8 x 5 1/2in (17.1 x 28.3 x 14cm)
Footnotes:
Watanabe Osao was born in Oita prefecture. He showed an early aptitude for art and enrolled in the Tokyo Fine Arts School, known today as Tokyo University of the Arts, to study Buddhist sculpture. He was quick to adopt European sculpting and bronze casting techniques from Moriyoshi Naganuma (1857-1942), who had trained in Italy. Watanabe exhibited in the 1904 World's Fair (the Louisiana Purchase Exhibition), the 1914 Tokyo Taisho Exhibition, and the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. He is best known for his extant sculptures of shishi lions and kirin (a mythical chimera-like beast) at Nihonbashi in Tokyo. Due to metal shortages in wartime Japan, a number of his works were lost to requisition for melting and re-purposing during the war effort.
