ASANO, TAKEJI

TAKEJI ASANO was born in Kyoto in 1900 and lived to 1999. He began a study of art in his youth. In 1919 he graduated from the Kyoto City School of Fine Arts and Crafts and then from the Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting in 1923. Among his Early Teachers was the artist and printmaker Tsuchida Bakusen and Asano helped to organize the Kyoto Creative Print Society (Kyoto Sosaku-Hanga Kyoka) in 1929.

In 1930, Takeji Asano along with some other members of the Creative Print Society contributed several designs to a series of prints titled “Creative Prints of Twelve Months in new Kyoto” (Sosaku-hanga shin Kyoto junikagetsu). which were published by Uchida. He expanded his skills in print design as well as learning the skills of carving and printing which enabled him to create some self-carved and self-printed series of landscape prints. His main fame came in the 1950s and many of his works have been published by Unsodo.
