About the artist

Born in Kyoto in 1900, Takeji graduated from Kyoto City School of Fine Arts and Crafts (1919), followed by Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting (1923). Though he initially focused on Japanese-style painting and the tutelage of Bakusen Tsuchida, Takeji became an active, founding member of the Kyoto Sosaku-Hangakai (1929). The following year, he collaborated with Benji Asada and Tomikichiro Tokuriki on the series Creative Prints of Twelve Months in New Kyoto, published by Uchida. Takeji was a talented carver and contributed to many different collaborative and solo series. He was an associate member of Nihon Hanga Kyokai from 1955 to 1960. Takeji's landscape prints may be signed “takeji to” in kanji, while his later humorous prints from the 1970s and 80s are signed with the year and the initials “T.A.”
