Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita was a Japanese painter best known for his participation in the bohemian culture during of the 1910s in Montparnasse, Paris. Foujita’s strange yet representational paintings often depict himself, cats, and women. He found nearly immediate success in Paris and, despite having no connections beforehand, Foujita was able to sell and live off his art. Born on November 27, 1886 in Tokyo, Japan, he went on to study at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 1910. After his move to Paris, Foujita met and became friends with prominent avant-garde artists of the day. His work can now be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others. Foujita died on January 29, 1968 in Zürich, Switzerland at the age of 81.
