Ota Chou

Ohta Hajime Oto (October, 1896 (Meiji 29) October 18-1958 (Showa 33) March 2) was a Japanese painter who was active from Taisho to the Showa period. His real name is Eikichi. The first and the second issue, Mt.

I am from Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture. As the father separated from his wife shortly after it was born, he grew up without knowing his mother's love for a lifetime. In the later years, he often tells people that "the motive for production is to perpetuate the mother's heart," and it can be said that this background created the basis of the art of rain. Hui was delivered as a grandfather's fourth son at a government office, and his father, who was a mountain teacher, often grew up with his grandfather because he was absent. My grandfather runs a sushi restaurant in Nikkamachi (Aoba-ku), and he helped cook the family business, such as cooking rice from an early age, water work, and preparation of pickles. When his grandfather died at the age of 11, he became a boy who fell in love with his uncle and aunt.

Graduated from Uesugi Dori Elementary School with outstanding results in 1910 (Meiji 43). When I was 14 the following year, I was taken over by my father working as a printmaker in Tokyo and moved to Tokyo. Soon after, he will be a disciple of Naito Harushu under Tamahata Kawabata. From that time on, he began to use the paintings of the rainy season, and was derived from the former generation of nuns and navels, “Hyoto Umeda, Omo-makura in Omakuraken”. In the third year, I can not bear my food expenses and return to my father's home. In order to help the family budget, I took up the work of a painter and artist, and I spend my days making night films.

The first prize winner to exhibit "Kagagaike" at the 13th exhibition of the 1913 (Taisho 2) Tokyo Art Conference. At that time, the planning group not only served as a gateway to emerging artists, but also held regular research meetings to foster young painters. As well as participating in this, Hakuin had a separate study group with Kobayashi Sanuki et al.'S peers, who became life-long artist's friends, and conducted research 40 times to create the Aoki society in 1918 (Taisho 7). As the audience has already been the center person of the association, the exhibition will be held as the association and it will be released to the world, so it will falsely believe with the believers and hold the first exhibition with the room of the Asakusa Methodist Church. From the second exhibition of the next year, we will invite the works and expand the meeting. There was no evidence of having been exhibited at the expositions and exhibitions at this time, and my future was devoted to the development of the Aokikai. There aren't many works left around this time, but there are many works that make you feel romanticism as a literary hobby.

In 1922 (Taisho 11), formed the first author alliance with Takahara-kai, Akira Sora Japanese Art Association, Yukisu-sha, Akajinsha, which is a small group of Japanese paintings, under the banner of "Anti-Episio Exhibition / Counter-Institutional Exhibition" . This is known as the forerunner of proletarian art in Japan, but when the political color of the Takaharakai party that is its main subject becomes clear, Aokisha withdrew this during that year. However, when the sixth exhibition was held the following year, the Great Kanto Earthquake struck, and Aoki Co., Ltd., which has no economic foundation, suffered financial difficulties and members were scattered. Hearing that I experienced a deep set of pains, but for the sake of life I cut off the brush of this work but I took three years to come back.

To the hospital exhibition coterie
Introductory to Aoya Maeda with the introduction of the three seasons of 1927 (Showa 2) and re-start. It was the Bible that supported the heart of the rain that was already 31 years old. Two years in a row at the hospital exhibition, but exhibiting works on the subject of Christ, but also lost. In 1930 (Showa 5), ​​this time, it changed completely, and “Jodo Change” (currently unknown location), which covered the legend of the Nakasu Hime of Toma-ji Temple, got a spotlight in recognition of the 1st Japan Art Academy Award. After that, he also sent out masterpieces such as "birth", "seed", and "woman looking at stars".

In 1944 (Showa 19), I was evacuated to Izu and Shimoda, and spent seven years until I became an associate professor at Tokyo Art University in the same year. After the war, even if Japanese paintings that can paint a large amount of rock paint were popular, at the beginning the rainy season tried to preserve traditional Japanese paintings. In 1948 (Showa 23), "Drawing Nikawa Shiramichi" can be said to be just such a painter's self-portrait. However, while aiming to change direction from around 1950 (Showa 25) and constructing a color surface while making use of the original color of the rock paint, it is thought that it will move to a style that represents the shape of an object, 1958 (Showa 33 years) Death due to cerebral hemorrhage. Happy New Year 61.
