About the artist

Born in Yamanashi prefecture, Gakusui Ide studied Japanese-style painting with Tamon Yamanouchi and Kanpo Araki. Living in China between 1929 and 1946, he commenced his career as a woodblock artist after returning to Japan in 1949. In Japan, Gakusui also worked with the famed Shin Hanga publisher Shozaburo Watanabe, focusing on kacho-e (bird-and-flower pictures). He is particularly known for his prints of cranes and herons, which feature distinctly bold geometric lines.
