Lot Essay

Yamato-e artist Morimura Yoshine was active in Bunten and Teiten national exhibitions. He continued the classical style of Sesshu and Tanyu but later in his career he simplified his artistic language. A prestigious artist during his lifetime, he founded an art academy to foster the development of young artists. His legacy was solidified when he was commissioned to create the mural at Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery and won an award at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915. His work can be found in the collections of the Yamatane Museum of Art and the Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art.
