東京国立近代美術館「菱田春草展」(”Hishida Shunso: A Retrospective” at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo)

hishida-sunso-ten01早世の天才日本画家、菱田春草(1874-1911)の大回顧展が東京国立近代美術館で11月3日まで開催中。今更ながらに、卓越した無駄のない構成力と表現力に吸い込まれた。猫の中で私のお気に入りは右から2番目。子猫の心理状態がひと目でわかる観察力、よっぽどの猫好き!と思いきや、春草は猫が嫌いだったとのこと。

A large-scale retrospective of Hishida Shunso (1874-1911), a Japanese style-painter, is on at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, until 3 November. Excellent composition, rich expression and beautifully controlled colours. My favourite cat is the second from the right. Shunso’s observation of the cats is so astute that I was amazed to learn that he didn’t like them.
