*Watanabe Seitei was one of the most fascinating Japanese artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He traveled through Europe, visited Amsterdam, went on to Paris where he became close to the circle of artists around the Goncourt brothers. He made a sketch for Degas and educated his fellow artists in the techniques of Japanese painting. In Japan he was the driving force behind the production of the beautiful art journal Bijutsu sekai. His oeuvre consists largely of paintings of flowers and birds. He also illustrated a few beautiful books on birds. This is an artist who deserves an exhibition here in Europe! ||Signed:||Seitei, with artist seal.||Size:||Condition:||Price:||Euro 3200||Reference:|
