Thought to be the student of Hogai Kano, Kin-u Takeshita worked during the Meiji period. He primarily painted genre scenes, landscapes, and kacho-e, or bird-and-flower prints. In the 1950s, the publisher Uchida released prints of Takeshita's paintings.
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it, we go nowhere. - Carl Sagan
