Fumiko Hori (堀 文子, Hori Fumiko, July 2, 1918[1] – February 5, 2019) was a Japanese artist, known for her paintings in the Nihonga style.

Biography

Hori was born to a scholarly family in Hirakawacho, in Tokyo, Japan, in 1918.[2][3] In 1940, she graduated from Women's School of Fine Arts (now Joshibi University of Art and Design).[4][5][6] She trained in Nihonga, a traditional Japanese painting style.[2] In 1952, she won the Uemura Shōen Award, given to outstanding Japanese female painters.[7]

In 1960, Hori's husband, a diplomat, died of tuberculosis.[8] Hori decided to travel the world, leaving Japan for the first time and visiting Egypt, Europe, the United States and Mexico.[2] Upon her return to Japan, she moved to the Kanagawa countryside[8] and created works inspired by her travels.[2] The natural world, including flowers and animals, was a theme of her work throughout her career.[3][9]

From the 1950s to the 1970s, Hori created illustrations for magazines and children's books,[2][3] including a 1971 picture book adaption of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker that won an award at the Bologna Children's Book Fair.[3][10] She also taught painting at Tama Art University.[9] In 1987, she won the Kanagawa Culture Prize.[9]

Hori lived in Arezzo, in Tuscany, Italy, for five years from 1987, setting up a studio there and painting colourful images of the local setting.[8][3] She continued to travel to countries around the world, including such destinations as the Amazon, Nepal, and Mexico.[8]

In 2000, she survived life-threatening aneurysm; she was inspired by this experience to paint microorganisms, as viewed under a microscope.[2][8] This work appeared in a solo exhibition at Nakajima Art Gallery in Ginza, Tokyo.[8] A ceramic piece based on one of her paintings, Utopia, was installed in the lobby of Fukushima Airport in 2014.[11]

Hori continued to paint into her final years.[2][7] The Museum of Modern Art in Hayama showed a retrospective of her work from November 2017 to March 2018;[12] the earliest piece was a self-portrait from 1930, and the most recent piece was Red-Flowering Japanese Apricot, painted in 2016 when Hori was 98 years old.[2]

Hori died on February 5, 2019, at a hospital in Hiratsuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, at age 100.[10] The Narukawa Art Museum in Hakone, home of over 100 of her works, hosted a memorial exhibition from July to November 2019.[13]
