YUMEJI (Yumeji Takehisa) is a painter known for modern Japanese art and illustration. He was active from the Meiji era to the early Showa era, specialising in Bijinga (picture of beautiful women).

Renowned for his distinctive use of color and lines, he fused traditional Japanese aesthetics with Western influences, gaining popularity. His works feature beautiful women and everyday scenes, emphasising details like hairstyles, clothing and expressions.
