Takashi Nakayama (1893-1978) was a Japanese watercolourist, working in a style that combines influences from traditional Japanese ukiyo-e prints and Western painting. His son Tadashi Nakayama (1927-2014) was also an artist and woodblock printmaker, and the two are often confused due to the similarity of their signatures.
