FOUJITA, Tsuguharu (1886-1968 was born in Japan and studied at the Imperial School of Fine Arts in Tokyo. By 1910 he had received several medals and prizes; the Japanese Emperor even purchased one of his paintings. On a trip to Korea in 1911, he was asked to paint the king. Foujita seemed destined for a career in the Orient until he traveled to London in 1912 and then, in 1913, went to live in Paris. He discovered European contemporary art, much as the French, in the nineteenth-century, had discovered Japanese prints. Foujita had his first exhibition in Paris in 1917 and by 1924 he was one of the most important exhibitors at the Salon d' Automne. In the same year he was elected a member of the Tokyo Academy of Fine Arts for he was the first Japanese artist to free that country's art of its legendary and classic image. Foujita was then selected to decorate the Japanese House at the Cité Universitaire in Paris. He traveled to England, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, and the United States where he had a studio until 1939. He returned to Paris at the outbreak of World War II and remained there until 1941 after which he spent nine years in Tokyo" (This information was obtained at
