Yasuda Yukihiko

Yasuda Yukihiko

▪ Japanese painter
original name Yasuda Shinzaburō
born Feb. 16, 1884, Nihonbashi, Tokyo
died April 29, 1978, Ōiso, Kanagawa Prefecture

      painter who excelled in depicting historical personages in the tradition of Japanese painting but augmented them with a psychological dimension.

      Yasuda studied briefly under Kobori Tomone at the Tokyo Art Academy but left before graduation to establish a study group called Kōjikai in 1901, with the cooperation of several young artists. He contracted tuberculosis while still young, but this did not prevent him from continued involvement. In 1914 he joined the Japan Fine Arts Academy upon its revival and became one of its most important members. His technique was based on that of the Yamato-e (traditional Japanese painting), and he painted with graceful lines and warm and gentle colouring. His historical paintings were enriched by his erudition and profound knowledge of Japanese history. Among his best-known works are “The Hall of Dreams” (1912), “Praying for Her Majesty's Safe Delivery” (1914), and “The Camp at Kise River” (1941). Yasuda also taught at the University of Tokyo from 1944 to 1951. He received the Order of Cultural Merit in 1948, becoming in that year a member of the Japan Art Academy.
