Starting as a Nihon-ga painter

By Kyoto Prefectural Domoto-Insho Museum of Fine Arts

In 1919, when Fukakusa, the first painting that Insho submitted to an art exhibition publicly soliciting entries, was accepted, his career as a Nihon-ga painter commenced on a full scale. He produced works on various themes, including landscapes, birds and flowers, daily scenes, religious subjects, and portraits.
