KAMISAKA SEKKA (1866-1942) is considered one of the greatest Japanese artists of the first half of the twentieth century. He was the final master of an historic Japanese artistic tradition known as Rimpa, founded in the early 17th century, and through his collaborative work in many media and as a proponent of the development of modern crafts, he is known as the father of modern design in Japan.
ABOUT RIMPA
Rimpa is the most "Japanese" of all the artistic schools in Japan's history, and its noteworthy elements include broad areas of brilliant mineral pigment, lavish use of gold and silver leaf, "boneless style" brushwork in which contour lines are simplified or eliminated, narrow pictorial space, and abstracted composition. Rimpa school works seem both modern and timeless; indeed, it is difficult to date a work purely on visual evidence. The Rimpa style is immediately recognizable and has been popular in Japan for three centuries, with masters appearing in every generation. Sekka reinvigorated this 300-year-old tradition by inventing new compositions, employing newly developed aniline dyes, and further abstracting traditional Rimpa themes such as nature and illustrations of classical literature.
