Renoir and Umehara – A relationship between Japanese and French art

Ryuzaburo Umehara’s “Forbidden City of Beijing” painted in 1940, is one of the paintings on loan to Mitsubishi’s Ichigokan Museum in Tokyo.

The young Japanese painter met with the Impressionist master Pierre-Auguste Renoir in 1909, who then became his mentor.

His ensuing tutelage under the latter would influence the next generation of artists in Japan’s newly adopted art of Western-style oil painting.
