Shinsui ITO Biography


Shinsui ITO was born in Fukagawa, Tokyo, a part of the old downtown area of the city that retained the strong flavor of Edo era. Coming from this part of Tokyo it seems only natural that he would became a pupil of Kaburaki Kiyokata, a painter who inherited the tradition of Ukiyoe(Ukiyo-e). Shinsui's style of Ukiyo-e was influential not only on artists working in traditions from Edo era, but also on a great many Western artists as well. Due to the fresh, young feeling in his work, the charm and composition of so-called Bijinga(Bijin-ga) changed over the course of Taisho and Showa eras.

Going beyond Bijinga as simply a beautifully rendered image of a lovely woman, Shinsui ITO painted a variety woman living at the time, painting their individual beauty as if to give them the role of serving as representatives of their time. For him this takes form in a breadth of subjects, form Kimono-clad women, as in this work, to dancers, actresses and more modern women in Western fashions. However, Shinsui ITO, who was selected when only 14 years old for his work to be exhibited in the Tatsumigakaiten Exhibition, reveals his superior gift in the structural composition and line work of his images of women in Japanese Kimono.
