Kotato Gado, Rush Hour in Subway, c. 1918

This geometric line drawing depicts the interior of a crowded subway car during rush hour. This work was also exhibited at the 3rd Exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists in 1919. In “The Japanese,” […]the artist skillfully captures the movement of the “rush hour” vibe as a scene from the present-day scene. The “Family,” which seems to be a recent work, appears to be more and more mature and settled. (Souji, “Review of the Painting Exhibition,” Nihonjin (Japanese), No. 97, October 25, 1922).
