Woodblock print (reprint) - Takeuchi Seihō (1864-1942) - Maiko - Late 20th century

Seihō was a disciple of Kōno Bairei of the Maruyama-Shijō school of traditional painting.In 1882,two of his works received awards at the Domestic Painting Competition,one of the first modern painting competitions in Japan,which launched him on his career.

During the Exposition Universelle in Paris(1900),he toured Europe,where he studied Western art.After returning to Japan he established a unique style,combining the realist techniques of the traditional Japanese Maruyama–Shijo school with Western forms of realism borrowed from the techniques of Turner and Corot.This subsequently became one of the principal styles of modern Nihonga.

In 1913,Seihō was appointed as an Imperial Household Artist,and in 1919 was nominated to the Imperial Fine Arts Academy.He was one of the first persons to be awarded the Order of Culture when it was established in 1937.
