Three pigeons


Born in Tokyo in 1908, Wakita studied in Germany at the age of 15 at the Berlin State Art School. After returning to Japan, he exhibited his works at the Kofukai and Teiten exhibitions, and in 1936, he participated in the founding of the Shinseisakuha Association. After the war, he exhibited his works at the Shinseisakuha Exhibition and other international exhibitions such as the Sao Paulo Biennial, the Salon de Mai, and the Venice Biennial, receiving high acclaim. In addition to participating in various exhibitions and holding solo exhibitions in Japan, he also taught at the Tokyo University of the Arts, providing guidance to younger artists. He established his studio in Karuizawa in 1970, and built the Wakita Museum of Art there in 1991. His works, which include oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, and prints, have made a significant mark in the history of Japanese painting. Using birds and children as motifs, his works combine warm colors and solid composition to create a world full of poetic sentiment. In 1998, he was awarded the "Person of Cultural Merit" and passed away in 2005 at the age of 97.
