description

Summary

Nakamura Tsune was born in 1887 in what is now Mito City, into a family that had served as samurai in the Mito domain. His father died the following year, his mother when he was eleven. He graduated from the Nagoya Army Cadet School in 1904 but was forced to abandon his plans for a career as a soldier after contracting tuberculosis. While recuperating, he developed aspirations to become a painter, and in 1906 joined the Research Institute of the White Horse Society, before moving the following year to the Research Institute of the Pacific Western Painting Society. That same year he was baptised. In 1908 he began to socialize with artists including Ogiwara Rokuzan at the Nakamura-ya Atelier in Shinjuku. Two of his works, Cloudy Morning and Cliffs (now in the Museum of the Imperial Collections) featured in the Third Bunten Exhibition in 1909, the latter receiving a commendation. In 1911 he moved into a studio behind the Nakamura-ya. The following year haemoptysis began. In 1913 Sōma Toshiko, daughter of Aizō and Kokkō, became his model. In 1914, Girl won a prize at the Eighth Bunten Exhibition. Later that year he visited Izu Ōshima. In 1915 his petition for the hand of Toshiko in marriage was opposed by her parents (she went on to marry Rash Behari Bose). In 1916 he built a studio in Shimo-Ochiai in Shinjuku and exhibited Dr. Tanakadate and Nude at the Eleventh Bunten Exhibition. His Portrait of Eroshenko was exhibited at the Second Teiten Exhibition in 1920.
