As in the west, themes related to industrialisation preoccupied artists in Japan.
Village and Apricot Blossoms (1914)
Western influenced drawing techniques, Japanese subject matter.
This is one of my favourite paintings in the museum - so peaceful. Western impressionist techniques, clearly showing Japanese way of life and nature.
Landscape of the Four Seasons 1910
Despite the introduction of Western ideas and techniques, traditional artistic styles, which were heavily reliant on Chinese influence, remained and periodically had a renaissance. This is one of a series of panels, the rest can be seen if you click on the link below.
Quo Vadis (1949)
Kobayashi has a series of vivid landscapte oil paintings exhibited in the MoMAT. There seems to be almost nothing on him in English search engines on the internet, though he is in one place described as a Japanese Fauve, which is probably fitting - they Japanese Fauves started a decade or so after the emergence of Fauvism (Matisse among others) in France. This painting, while very similar to some in the MoMAT, is actually exhibited in the Kure Municipal Museum, near Hiroshima. (The picture Small Bay from the MoMAT site similar but is too small to put here).
