Takehisa Yumeji
Yumeji Takehisa (竹久 夢二 Takehisa Yumeji?, September 16, 1884 – September 1, 1934), was a Japanese poet and painter. Takehisa died in 1934 at the age of 49. He never studied drawing in any painting school nor under any teacher formally. He hated the concept of the "artist", feeling they were rather pretentious which unsurprisingly upset many of the artists of his time, leading to poor reviews from the so-called elite.
Outside of the art circles, Takehisa's works acquired great popularity among ordinary people and to this day have many ardent fans in Japan and abroad. At an earlier stage in his life he intended to become a poet, but knowing he could not make a living as a poet, he began drawing pictures. He was born in Oku (now Setouchi), Okayama, Japan. His childhood home has been preserved and opened to visitors. He is buried in Zoshigaya Cemetery in the Ikebukuro area of Tokyo.

Through the Sapphire Sky: Takehisa Yumeji, artist entitled dreams
Willowy beauties, the sweet taste of melancholy, and lyricism characterize the art of Takehisa Yumeji (竹久夢二, 1884~1934, real name: Takehisa Mojiro), a leading figure of the Taisho Romanticism movement in Japan. “Yumeji-style” beauties and the lovely designs created by him won him great popularity among young women of his day and his drawing power has still persisted to this day.

Goethe Etc.: Takehisa Yumeji
While Goethe was familiar with Chinese literature (more on that in a future post), Japan had not really entered his sphere of thinking. It's too bad, for no doubt he would have admired the charming images of Japanese women painted by Takehisa Yumeji.
