Takehisa Yumeji (1884-1934)Black cat ('kuroi neko') - Limited edition no.: 69/150Kato Junjic. 1950sWoodblock printdai oban (c. 17.3 x 12.2 inches)Takehisa YUMEJI became famous for his pictures (pintings, prints, books) expressing the particular feeling of the Taisho democracy, the Taisho romanticism. Next to classical depictions of young women wearing kimonos, we also find the type of 'modern' girl (moga) dressed in western clothes, self-conscious, but vulnerable at the same time. Also, the influence of the art deco style which found its way to Japan at the time is quite noticeable in Yumeji's work. - Due to the artist's untimely death at the age of forty-nine, much of his work was published posthumously as is the case with this print.
