(p.159) Chapter Seven Farmers' Art in an Age of Cosmopolitan Agrarianism
On Uneven Ground
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on the efforts of Miyazawa Kenji to promote farmers' art during an era of cosmopolitan agrarianism in Japan. It highlights the success of Miyazawa and fellow advocates to popularize nomin geijutsu and reposition the farmer as both agricultural and cultural producer in the 1920s. It discusses doubts on the authenticity of nomin geijutsu and the questions about what constituted an authentic farmers' art and the role of intellectuals and established artists in this form of art.

Keywords:   Miyazawa Kenji, farmers' art, nōmin geijutsu, cosmopolitan agrarianism, Japan, intellectuals, established artists
