Object literature:  Shimura Tatsumi (1907-1980) was a prominent Japanese artist known for his exquisite bijin-ga (beautiful women) woodblock prints and paintings. Born in Takasaki, Gunma Prefecture, Shimura developed a passion for art from a young age, eventually studying traditional Japanese painting (nihonga). His early work was influenced by the shin-hanga (new prints) movement, which sought to rejuvenate ukiyo-e art by blending traditional techniques with contemporary sensibilities.

Shimura's art is characterized by its elegant and refined depiction of women, capturing their grace and beauty in a manner reminiscent of classical Japanese aesthetics. His works often portray women in traditional kimono, set against serene and picturesque backgrounds. Throughout his career, Shimura remained dedicated to the portrayal of feminine beauty, imbuing his subjects with a sense of poise and tranquility.

In addition to his paintings and prints, Shimura also contributed to the world of illustration and design, including work for kabuki theater and book illustrations. His legacy endures through his timeless bijin-ga, which continue to be celebrated for their artistic excellence and cultural significance. Shimura Tatsumi's work remains a testament to the enduring allure of traditional Japanese art, merging historical motifs with a modern touch.
