16th of March 2021, “Japanese and Korean Art” Live Auction during Christie’s Asia week sales in New York.

Katsushika Hokusai’s woodblock print 葛飾北斎の浮世絵「冨嶽三十六景‐神奈川沖浪裏」(約1831年) “Under the Well of the Great Wave off Kanagawa”, made sometime around 1831, sold for $1.6 million with buyer’s premium, 10 times its low estimate of $150,000, a new record for the artist. The scene, which is the Japanese painter’s signature image, depicts Tokyo-bound boaters confronting rough waters, with Mount Fuji visible in the background.
Hokusai’s wave prints, begun in the early 1800s, are his most famous works. They were introduced to the European market in the mid-19th century. By the time this print was produced, the artist was in his 70s and in financial need.

more works will be up-loaded sometime in the near future…

井上 有一(いのうえ ゆういち、1916年2月14日-1985年6月15日)は、昭和時代の教育者・書家。

“To my mind, he (Yuichi) is unquestionably one of the small handful of great artists of the second half of the twentieth century. I do not know whether his work has been shown outside Japan, but it certainly should be. He was a marvelous painter of what I call, in my mind,” essences” and I can think of no higher ideal in modern art which has abandoned storytelling” .
– Robert Motherwell (Letter to Masaomi Unagami, dated 16 April 1987)
Cofounder in 1952 of the avant-garde Society for calligraphy Bokujin-kai, Yu-ichi Inoue, along with four Kyoto-based calligrapher had the ambition to break through with the Post War Japanese calligraphy which felt to them merely decorative and lacking of new creative breath.
After a long seven-year training under mentorship of the established sho calligraphy master Ueda Sokyu, Yu-ichi started practicing calligraphy as he personally conceived it, slowly emancipating himself from the guidance of his teacher. This new exercise first destabilized the artist who suddenly realized that creativity can only go with a freeing movement. Then, followed a time when Yuichi devoted his entire self to the exploration of art by digesting and deconstructing his learning. Tirelessly he experimented new media and technics, hunted any rhetorical movement or set of rules to deepen his practice and finally acquire a complete freedom beyond any consciousness.
Tsuki (Moon) is created by wielding deft and powerful brush strokes, where composed boldness orchestrates vertical and horizontal structural lines that embody a beautiful artistic fusion of Western abstract expressionism and modern Japanese Calligraphy. Yu-ichi breaks with tradition and abandons the use of conventional small-size square paper. Instead, he opts for large sheets of paper with size over a hundred centimeters (40 in.) long in what he calls” the calligraphy of humans” — a liberation from traditional form of calligraphy that emphasizes skills to truthfully express the personal beliefs and emotions of the calligrapher by merging the human body and soul as one in the creation. At the end of the hook stroke in Tsuki (Moon), Yu-ichi lets the hook tapers off by sealing the space altogether: is it Moon or it isn’t? This essentially blurs the literal sense of the character ‘yue’ (moon), where the three geometric patterns conjure a sheer composition from the visual perspective, while the intense burst of ink dots on the upper left suggest the artist’s surge of creative passion.

Born in 1978 in Tokyo, Japan Lives and works in Otsu City, Japan
Toshiyuki Kajioka has stoically painted a single subject, the surface of a flowing river, for the past twenty years. After receiving training in traditional Japanese painting at school, Kajioka had an epiphanic moment and discovered what became his ultimate subject matter: the surface of a flowing river. Using only sumi ink and graphite pencil, Kajioka captures the wildness, tranquility, and depth of the river. He obsessively creates works as large as 90 x 430 inches, made of six panels. While the artist intends to capture a riverscape, his work also shares the intense characteristics of abstract painting.

Educated in several different genres of lacquer painting, traditional Japanese painting and western painting, Toshiyuki Enoki’s works are an amalgamation of the new and the aged, reality and myth. The artist strives to antiquate his works, not only in his thematic tribute to well known traditional artists such as Maruyama Okyo, but also in his artistic process. Using particularly worn brushes, Enoki cyclically paints, erases and transfers images in his works to create a unique atmospheric depiction of nature. As can be seen in all three pieces, the details of brushstrokes and overall reflective surface are reminiscent of lacquer works which served as an inspiration to the artist. His selection of warm color palette and scattered gold leaves across his canvas creates an overall magical and tranquil depiction in the three featured paintings.
