Tsunetomo Morita Retrospective Exhibition
@ Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art
November 23 ~ January 19 (2019)
Tsunetomo Morita (1881-1933) was known for his gentle rural landscapes. He studied at the Fudosha School and the Tokyo Art School. He was influenced by Shigeru Aoki and painted in western influenced styles and techniques. He published an art journal ‘Hosun (Dimensions of the Heart)’, illustrated a collection of haiku poetry ‘Hototogisu (Lesser Cuckoo)’, wrote manga, and was an active member of the literary scene.
He traveled to Europe in 1914 where he was profoundly influenced by Paul Cezanne which had a massive impact on his work. The next year he returned to Japan and traveled around the country, and developed a serene sense of Japanese landscapes.
He spent some time in Yamato (now part of Kitakata) in Fukushima Prefecture and painted scenes of Aizu-Wakamatsu, Kitakata, and the Aga River. This exhibition includes western style and Japanese style paintings, as well as magazines and drawings. Come and enjoy the diverse poetic sentiment of Tsunetomo Morita’s art.
