Yuichi Inoue

Inoue, Yuichi is one of Japan’s most important postwar arists and his name is mentioned with the likes of Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, Pierre Alechinsky and Henri Michaux.. He is among the few Japanese contemporary artists to win broad international acclaim in the postwar years. Taking the ink and paper of calligraphy tradition as his expressive medium, Inoue became a pioneering voice in the postwar Japanese art scene.

The critic Herbert Read discusses Inoue in his work "A Concise History of Modern Painting", which also includes one of his paintings. Robert Motherwell even describes him in his notes as one of the few great artists of the second half of the 20th century.
