Saiko Tsuji (1929-) Painter of Japanese-style art. Born in Tokyo. Her real name is Yo Itsuji. Studied under Chikkyo. One of her representative works created in 1994, “Leafless Trees on Evening Sky of Winter,” depicts a screen filled with leafless trees spreading their branches as if they are dancing, against the background of faint madder red sunlight by the mountains emitted from the sun that has sunk beneath the mountains, as well as sprawling white clouds that cover the evening sky starting to turn into deep blue. The impressive expression, in which both strength and subtlety reside together, is truly modern and surpasses the concept of Japanese-style painting. The painting has received a high praise in many countries including Japan, and received a certificate from the Louvre Royal Academy. She has received Houou Award at Todaiji Mugen-ten Exhibition, Art and Treasure Highest Rank Award at Kyoto Nishi-honganji Mugen-ten Exhibition, Best Creative Award at Geijutsu Kukan-ten Exhibition, Lautrec Grand Award at Lautrec 100 Year Art Festival, Grand Prix at Revolution of Beauty Exhibition in Louvre Museum, among others.
