Shinsui Itō: Japanese women in kimono. Which is your favorite color?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Shinsui Itō, in Japanese 伊東 深水 (1898-1972), was one of the great Japanese artists of the twentieth century. Arguably, traditional Japanese art entered into a decline after the introduction of photography, and the introduction of western artistic styles.  Under the name of Shinsui Itō, (his real name was Hajime Itō, in Japanese: 伊東 一), he continued to use the “old” style of Japanese woodblock print painting.

I like his work, because he often depicted Japanese women in a peaceful, yet sensuous manner. His depictions of beautiful Japanese women in kimono are the subject of my post today. Ahem … what a peaceful moment …
