    Baiitsu was an itinerant artist who came into contact with diverse artistic influences, including the work of the Chinese painter *Shen Nanpin (Shen Quan, 1682–1758), who worked in Japan from 1731 to 1733, as well as that of other Chinese painters known in Japan. Baiitsu transformed these influences into an original style of his own, which was characterized by a sensuous surface quality and serene clarity. Distinctive to his technique was his inclination to use black ink in the same manner in which colors were customarily applied-that is, not only for linear brushwork but also for soft washes. Skillfully combining these ink washes with washes of color and well-defined, sinuous contours, he contributed a lyrical, intimate vision of nature to Japanese Nanga painting.

    Yamamoto Baiitsu (also known as Yamamoto Shinryo; Baiitsu; Baika; Gyokuzen)

    (b Nagoya, 1783; d Nagoya, 1856). Japanese painter.
    He was the son of a sculptor, who worked for the Owari clan.
    He probably first studied with Yamamoto Ranei, a minor Kano school artist, who later switched to painting ukiyoe (‘pictures of the floating world’). It is said that another early teacher when Baiitsu was a child was Yamada Kyujo (1747–93), a prominent exponent of literati (Jap. Nanga or Bunjinga) painting in Nagoya, who died when Baiitsu was only ten years old. However, it is more likely that Baiitsu studied under Cho Gessho (1770–1832), a Shijo school painter and haikupoet who was a pupil of Kyujo. Baiitsu also claimed to have been influenced by the Nagoya artist Tanaka Totsugen (1767–1823), founder of the Yamatoe revival (Fukko Yamatoe) movement. The most formative influence on Baiitsu’s approach to painting was that of his mentor, the merchant and collector Kamiya Ten’yu (1710–1801), who also patronized other literati painters, including Nakabayashi Chikuto (1776–1853). Baiitsu studied and copied Ten’yu’s collection of Chinese paintings of the Yuan (1279–1368) to Qing (1644–1911) periods, a practice he continued throughout his career and it is that influence that has given this scroll a slightly Chinese similarity. He was also instructed by Ten'yu in Chinese painting methodology and, under his guidance, developed an interest in a variety of literati pursuits, including the collecting and connoisseurship of Chinese painting, the preparing of tea in Chinese style (sencha) and the writing of Japanese classical verse (waka) and Chinese-style poetry.

    Judy Drew was born in 1951. Her passion for the post impressionist period and the influence of Japanese art in the late 1880's, along with her creative sense of colour and form, allow Judy to create beautiful and modern work, even though Judy's work is contemporary she retains a touch of sentiment in all her pieces.

    Her rich and textured pastels convey her emotion and love for this medium creating refreshing and strong compositional work, which is sensitive to the subject matter.

    Judy'd love for figurative work and her sensitive portraits of the Bougainville people gained local and international attention whilst living and working on Bougainville Island in papua New Guinea from 1976 to 1984. After living in Papua New Guinea, Judy returned to Melbourne and continued to concentrate on her figurative work and still life compositions.

    She studied Graphic Art at Prahran College of Art in Melbourne and has been recognized with numerous awards including the Omega Contemporary Art Prize and the Portrait Prize, Melbourne Savage Club. With sell-out exhibitions, Judy's reputation continues to soar as one of Australia's most talented and exciting female artists.

    At the age of 10, he moved to the United States with his family, and by age 17 he was working for an engraving house while attending night classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. He returned to Germany in 1904 to attend the Kunstgewerbe Schule in Munich where he studied wood carving and learned the techniques of wood block prints. After returning to the U.S. he began producing color woodcuts as early as 1908, earning his living as a graphic artist.

    He spent time in Brown County, Indiana as a member of the Brown County Art Colony, developing his printmaking technique. He followed the traditional European method of color relief printing using oil-based inks and printing his blocks on a large press. This contrasted with the trend at the time of many American artists to employ hand rubbed woodblock prints in the Japanese traditional style. By this time he had developed his personal artist's seal: the opened palm of a hand on a heart. His Mill Pond is the largest color woodcut produced at the time. These were shown at the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition where Baumann won the gold medal for color woodcut. In 1918, he headed to the Southwest to inquire into the artists' colony of Taos, New Mexico. Thinking it too crowded and too social, he boarded the train which stopped in Santa Fe. Its Museum of Fine Art had opened the previous year and its open door policy for artists appealed to Baumann.

    In Santa Fe, Baumann became known as a master of woodcuts and marionette-making, also producing oils and sculpture. His work depicted southwestern landscapes, ancient Indian petroglyphs, scenes of Pueblo life, and gardens and orchards. He remained in Santa Fe for more than fifty years until his death in 1971

    Louis Welden Hawkins (1849–1910) was born in Germany of English parents, later taking French nationality. He was a detailed Symbolist painter.

    Louis Welden Hawkins was born in Stuttgart, Germany on 1 July 1849. His mother was an Austrian Baroness, his father an Englishman. Hawkins moved soon to France and later took French nationality. Hawkins attended the Académie Julian in Paris. Hawkins rose to fame after his expositions in the Salon de la Société des Artistes Francais. His first works were shown in the Salon in 1881. After that, expositions followed at the Salon de la Société des Beaux Artes (1894–1911), the Salon de la Rose+Croix (1894–95) and La Libre Esthétque in Brussels. He spent his last years in Brittany, where he painted mostly landscapes.

    Louis Welden Hawkins died on 1 May 1910 and was honoured a year later at the Salon Nationale.

    After his education at the Académie Julian, Hawkins chose the path of Symbolism. Symbolism began as an artistic movement that developed from Romanticism in France in the second half of the 19th century, taking its themes of decadence, dandyism and mysticism. Symbolism was a reaction to the impressionism. Symbolist painting emphasized fantasy and imagination in their depiction of objects. Symbolist artists often used metaphors and symbols to suggest a subject and favored mystical themes. Hawkins became famous because of his fine and dreamy female portraits.

    Nihonga landscape paintings

    Nihonga, the traditional Japanese style of painting, has a history stretching back hundreds of years. The style developed greatly during the Edo period (1603–1868). The term was further popularised at the turn of the 20th century, when it was employed to distinguish traditional painting techniques from Western-style oil painting.

    The colours used for Nihonga derive from natural minerals. Semi-precious stones, shells and other materials are brought to a high temperature and mixed with glue to create paint. By controlling the temperature, a huge variety of colours can be obtained.

    Technically balanced, Nihonga is characterised by a subtlety of expression that avoids unnecessary contrasts. The use of shadows and shading and other features distinguish Nihonga from Western-style oil painting.

    After World War II, there were fears that Nihonga was facing a decline. However, Kaii Higashiyama and his many iconic works are credited with having restored the art to its former place in Japanese culture.
