Fade from
This world's
Human hearts
And flowers.

"I wander around the thoughts of people" -- Kaburagi initially made his living as an illustrator, producing frontispieces called kuchi-e, illustrating the titles of popular novels. His works were highly praised by noted author Kyōka Izumi, who insisted that his novels be illustrated by Kaburagi. However, Kaburagi's first and foremost interest was in painting. In 1901, he helped create the Ugokai, an art group dedicated to reviving and popularizing the bijin-ga (images of beautiful women) genre. When the government-sponsored Bunten exhibitions were started in 1907, Kaburagi began to paint full time, winning several prizes.

  1. Hi Lili,
    Well done on this collection of wonderful paintings, I love the Violinist!
    If you ever put together a collection of Uemura please let me know, another japenese artist who's work is not used any where near enough!
    thank you again.
