Oil painting of a landscape likely exhibited at the show, Onchi K?shir? Shina F?kei Gaten ??????????? [Onchi K?shir? Chinese Landscapes Art Exhibit] held at the Shinjuku branch of Isetan Department Store in October of 1939 when Onchi was 48 years old. (See "Gendai Bijutsu" ???? [Modern Art] Vol 7-2.) As were many other important Japanese artists during the Chinese conflict and Pacific War, he was sent by the armed forces in 1939 to record the war on the ground. Much like Yoshida Hiroshi, he captured both beauty and pathos in China as the war ground on.
