A large abstract image of a yellow crested bird by Takama Soshichi dated 1957. Oil on canvas in a simple raw wood storage frame, it is 18 x 24 inches (46 x 61 cm) and is in excellent condition.
Takama Soshichi (1889-1974) was born in Tokyo, and attended the Tokyo University of Art. From the Taisho to early Showa he exhibited with the Bunten and Teiten. In 1924 he, along with Makino Torao, Kumaoka Yoshihiko, Okubo Sajiro, Saito Yori, and Tanabe Itaru, established Kaijusha, which held exhibitions annually until 1931 with a focus on Fauvism, cubism and pleinairism. In 1932, Takama, Saito and Kumaoka established Tokokai (The Eastern Light Society) which is holding its 83rd exhibition in 2017. Throughout the pre-war years he was consistently exhibited at the Nitten. Post war he became a member of the Dokurtsu Bjutsu Kyokai, and continued to exhibit with the Nitten. His work “Sakuhin 1” (1962) is held in the collection of the National Museum of Modern Art Tokyo.
