Imao Keinen (1845-1924)
Our current exhibit is Four Seasons by Imao Keinen (1845-1924), which will be presented from November 6 through December 19.
Imao Keinen was born in Kyoto, where he studied Ukiyo-e painting with Umegata Hyakunen. In 1880, he began to teach as a professor at the Kyoto Prefecture School of Painting. He was a frequent exhibitor and prize winner at many shows and exhibitions in Japan and Paris. In 1904, he became a member of the Art Committee of the Imperial Household and a member of the Imperial Art Academy. In 1907 Keinen was a juror for the first "Bunten" or Japanese Art Academy, the highest ranking art organization in Japan.
An important Ukiyo-e painter, he specialized in Kacho-ga (flower and bird prints) with very realistic detail. He is best known for these albums of prints which were printed in 1891.
