Women between Hopes and Fears: Masterpieces Discovered by the Hoshino Gallery
|Author||Shiro Uezono ed.|
Many an artist in modern Japan has been forgotten, swept away by the tides of time. But the women they lovingly portrayed—women who, as we can clearly see, strove to live life to the fullest each in her own era—still captivate us today with their vivacious expressions. Here are 121 masterpieces featuring girls and young women from Kyoto’s Hoshino Gallery, a one-of-a-kind art dealership specializing over fifty years in rediscovering and showcasing paintings that have slipped from modern Japanese art history. The works are no less appealing for their backgrounds, with their evocative and enchanting reminders of a Japan that once was.
