Toshi Shimizu, Yokohama Night, 1921

Toshi Shimizu moved to France in 1924 and was not in New York at the time. This work was included in the exhibition from the George Bellose collection.
“Yokohama Night” is a masterpiece and among the best of your peers. (Ishigaki)
The night of Yokohama is a perfect example of the murky, gray Japanese culture and urban scene. In many ways, the subtleties of the artist’s worldview and human emotions are expressed without regret in the way he has arranged all kinds of characters among the narrow, dirty streets and irregular houses. (Fujioka) (“Review of the Art Exhibition,” New York Shimpo, March 5, 1927)
