A small framed painting of a bijin by the well known Japanese artist Kato Shinmei. Dating to approximately the mid 20th century, perhaps as early as the 1930's. Silhouetted against a shimmering gold background, her unaffected and confident pose expresses a casual sensuality which is enhanced by the truncated composition. Her chalk white skin stands out against the overriding tonal harmony of the work and draws us in to the individual personality of the subject, her western hairstyle an indication of her modernity. The work has been painted with ink, gofun and pigment over gold covered silk. It is in very good condition in all respects. It appears that the frame is original to the painting. The image measures 7.5'' by 5.5'' (20 by 14 cm. The frame measures 13.5'' by 11'' (35 by 28 cm). Kato Shinmei (1910-1988) was born in Nagoya and studied under Nakamura Gakuryo. He is first and foremost a painter of figures, in particular Maiko san. He was a regular exhibitor with the Nitten and won a prize there in 1948, later becoming a judge of the prestigious organization. He was also the recipient of numerous other prizes throughout his career.
