Fujita Tsuguharu (1886 – 1968) was a Japanese painter who worked in Paris. He applied French oil techniques to his paintings that he did in Japanese-style. Tsuguharu was a member of the School of Paris. He graduated from the Tokyo University of the Arts in 1910. And in 1913, he went to Paris, where he made friends with many of the great forbearers of modern Western art, including Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Amedeo Modigliani and Chaim Soutine. It was in 1917 that he exhibited his works for the first time in Paris. It was a nude portrait of Kiki de Montparnasse. It was a great success that led to many other exhibitions and also led to a hugely lucrative decade for the artist. He became much sought after and was known for his self-portraits, portraits, city scenes, nudes, and paintings and drawings of cats. Tsuguharu also published “A Book of Cats”, the limited edition which included twenty drawings of cats and became very valuable and a highly sought-after art book. His art is notable for its strong evocative line, a quality that resulted from the art training he received from Japan and was greatly admired by the Paris School artists. From 1931 to 1932, the artist traveled throughout Latin America and had several exhibitions with a major one being in Buenos Aires. His art, especially the framed Fujita Tsuguharu art, are much sought after to date. That’s why they are highly priced by many discerning art collectors. During the Second World War, he returned to Japan, where he worked as a war artist for the Japanese government.
