Leonard Tsuguharu Foujita: Cat

Lot 0110 Details

Description
Leonard Tsuguharu Foujita (Japanese-French, 1886-1968): Cat, Watercolor and India ink on paper, Signed and dated lower left with Japanese inscription. Framed.

Dimensions: 15.75 x 11.5 inches image/ 24.25 x 20.25 inches,frame.

Foujita was a Japanese/French painter and printmaker born in Tokyo, Japan, who applied Japanese ink techniques to Western style paintings. He has been called the most important Japanese artist working in the West during the 20th century. His friends included Picasso, Soutine, Rivera and Cocteau and many others such as the Sculptor Ossip Zadkine. He struck up a particularly close friendship with the famous Italian artist Modigliani.

Foujita blended traditional Japanese art with European Modernism in a unique manner, especially in his works on paper. He is best known for his nudes and cats. The majority of his work is either focused on cats or includes a cat in the subject. He states: The good and bad qualities of cats closely resemble the attributes of women. Cats never give anything away, they have grace, beauty of movement, intriquing languor. They move softly, gently, insinuatingly. Clever women live with cats.

Provenance: Private collection, Michigan.
