Mori Forest by Katayama Bokuyo - 1928
Katayama Bokuyo (1900-1937): Mori Forest, 1928. Ink and mineral pigments on silk, Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
At the young age of twenty-seven, Katayama Bokuyo_ was awarded the grand prize at Japan's annual Imperial Juried Exhibition in 1927. The following year, he submitted this painting showing a weasel nearly hidden in a tangled bed of flowering fishmint (dokudani) deep in the forest. The judges were so impressed that he was given the status of mukansa, literally "non-vetted," meaning that henceforth any painting he submitted to the annual exhibition would be automatically included.
