- 児島善三郎ZENZABURO KOJIMA[1893─1962]ヨーロッパ留学中に体得した立体表現と日本的平面性の両面性を画面の中に大胆に組み入れ、風景画においては、かのピカソもなし得なかった平面と立体的奥行きの融合に加え、情緒と色彩との親和性の構築に成功した類まれなる芸術家である。そこで得たダイナミズムを晩年の静物画や瓶花の絵の中でも縦横に発揮した。一点一点厳密に構成された作品は見るものに静かな喜びと満足感を与え続けている。作品の多くは今も多くの美術館や大企業のロビーや役員室を豪華に飾っている。Zenzaburo Kojima is an incomparable artist who boldly merged duality of cubic expression obtained in his studying days in Europe and Japanese flatness-expression in the same canvas. In particularly at landscape painting, he had achieved merger of flatness and cubic depth which Great Picasso had never achieved. And he also had succeeded in configurating compatibility of emotion and color. He applied these dynamics freely into still-life painting and flower― vase painting in his final years. The paintings were strictly configurated one by one, and they have been giving viewers still pleasure and satisfaction.
Now many of his works are still gorgeously adorning museums and large firms’ lobbies and executive- rooms.詳しくはこちら

- 織田広喜HIROKI ODA[1914─2012]人と街への憧憬を描き続けた画家。Hiroki Oda painted unidentified European streets and ethnic women long before he went to France in 1960. He continued to paint those sceneries and figures during and after his multiple visits to Europe. Instead of depicting things as they are, the distorted representations in his works are rooted in imagination, and longings for unvisited streets and unencountered persons. Hiroki Oda once said that one of the most essential elements in his work is “crafting lies with imagination”. His works pay an ode to Paris and female figures dreamed for but never encountered.詳しくはこちら
- 冨田渓仙KEISEN TOMITA[1879-1936]狩野派、四条派から禅画に至るまで幅広く学び、その実力を以て横山大観が千年に一人の逸材と評した画家。In 1909, Tomita Keisen travelled to China and painted cormorant fishing by the Yangtze River and Chinese Mountain-water. Later, he painted many masterpieces depicting the four-seasons scenery of Kyoto.
Tomita is a friend of the France Ambassador Paul Claudel of the time, who was a poet. They collaborated to create poems and paintings.
Having attended the exhibitions of Japan Visual Arts Academy (Nihon Bijutsuin), the works of Tomita was highly regarded by other well-established Japanese painters including Yokoyama Taikan (a key figure in founding the painting technique of Nihonga), who said that Tomita Keisen is such a precious talent that only appears once in a hundred years.詳しくはこちら
