The Secret of Yumeji-style Beautiful Girls

Takehisa Yumeji Museum
Until Sep 25

Artists

Yumeji Takehisa, Kasho Takabatake
The phrases "Yumeji-style" or "Yumeji-style bijin (beautiful girl)" were born from the unique expressions seen in Yumeji Takehisa's works, and now can even be found in dictionaries. Yet these phrases that appeared in a record of 1907 didn't indicate the works or the beautiful girs, but rather something being "unfamiliar" and "original". In this exhibition we will trace the formation of Yumeji-style bijin and will think about Yumeji's ideal of beauty which captivated the hears of many.
