Biography   Leonard Foujita


/ foo-jee-tuh /    click to hear
A French-Japanese painter and printmaker credited with being the "first Japanese artist to free that country's art of its legendary and classic image", Tsuguharu Foujita spent most of his career in Paris, where he was associated with revolutionary artists including Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and Henri Rousseau.  However, Foujita often returned to his native county and was there for nine years during World War II.  After that, he returned to Paris where he served as President of the Association of Japanese Artists.

His painting style was primarily expressionist, although he did some realism as well.  After his conversion to Catholicism, he did frescoes for the Chapel of Our Lady of Peace in Reims.&nbs   ...  Displaying 750 of 1547 characters.
