June 19, 2020: although purchases can still be made, shipping of artwork orders to selected countries via Japan Post has been temporarily suspended.

Unfortunately Japan Post has suspended shipping to many countries due to the inability of those countries to deliver incoming mail. As such, until further notice I have reluctantly suspended international shipments to the counties on this list. If your country is not on this list, shipping is possible. Japanese domestic shipments have no delays. I cannot predict when shipments to the remaining international destinations will recommence; it may be several months, and possibly even longer, but in any case artwork purchases will be safely stored here.

Can't wait? I have an alternate express shipper (Yamato Transport / UPS) that is shipping to most countries. Shipping is a little more expensive, so please contact me for details.

Artist Biography:
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. (from Wikipedia)
