Aoki Shigeru (1882–1911) is one of the representative painters in the history ofmodern Japanese art, and his career has been the subject of lively debate since the firstmajor study by Kawakita Michiaki in 1943. Even so, after 2000, publications of studies onhis work gradually diminished, and in recent years research seems to be at a standstill.This paper reviews that literature, and reaffirms the depth of Aoki’s relationshipwith foreign art, particularly that of fin de siècle Europe. The author then discusses thecharacteristic features of Aoki’s work that have emerged from this examination of previousresearch on the painter and attempts a reevaluation of his art. As a result, it willbe revealed that future research should accurately position the Meiji-era Western-stylepainter Aoki Shigeru within the context of modern Japanese art history, while at thesame time treating him, from a cultural interaction studies perspective, as part of aglobal fin de siècle movement.
