Yumeji Takehisa, widely known as the Japanese Lautrec, due to his delicate depiction in his art, was the driving force behind “Taisho Roman” (the cultural phenomena during the Taisho period where the modern European art style Romanticism blended with the traditional Japanese culture). Yumeji Art Museum (Main) has the best collection of Yumeji Takehisa, and was first founded and directed by Motoi Matsuda who was one of avid collectors of Yumeji’s artwork.
