Takashi Nakayama (1893-1978) - Mid 20th Century Watercolour, Man with a Basket



A fine watercolour portrait of a Japanese man with an umbrella, carrying a basket of foliage, by the Japanese artist Takashi Nakayama (1893-1978). The artist has a fine command of the medium, with meticulous lines and careful construction of form, especially in the facial features of the subject. Signed to the lower edge, as shown. On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and spotted staining around the edges. There is a pin hole to the upper edge.


31.9 x 15.5cm (12.6" x 6.1")
Sheet: 33.4 x 17.1cm (13.1" x 6.7")

Artist Biography

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.
