Mukai is a highly respected western painter known for undertaking a solo pilgrimage in Japan, and for his love of minka, classic Japanese houses. This MEGURU offers Mukai's iconic minka oil paintings and pen illustrations featured on the cover of Bungei Shunju. Having once visted the Lourve in his youth, Mukai would often return to it as a source of inspiration. By infusing the styles of a French landcape painting with the scene of a traditional Japanese minka, Mukai's paintings are undeniably unique.
Known for their vibrant colors and elegant designs, Rinpa works are cherished and respected worldwide. This MEGURU offers works by the great Rinpa icon, Sakai Hoitsu to works by master painters, Kamisaka Sekka and Ichikawa Kiyu, as well as works by Nakamura Hochu, who has gained mass traction in recent years for his unique and adorable works.
Established in the 1920s by the philosopher and art critic, Yanagi Muneyoshi (aka. Yanagi Soetsu), Mingei is a relatively new movement, which subverts traditional notions of beauty by celebrating the simpllicity and grace of everyday, utilitarian objects. An always-celebrated MEGURU feature, this edition will, like before, offer works by the leaders of Mingei, such as Munakata Shiko, Kawai Kanjiro, Munakata Shiko, Hamada Shoji, Bernard Leach and more.
