  • About

    Nakamura Ken'ichi was a prominent oil painter in the Showa period. His style was formed under the academic training at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts and with Okada Saburôsuke, then five years in Paris where he became a member of the Salon d'automne in 1927.

    This print is a good example of the artist's style and skill.
