Drawings by Kajita, Hanko

Kajita Hanko, whose given name was Kajita J˘jir˘, was born in Tokyo. He was the son of the famous smith Masaharu. He studied painting with the Shij˘ painter Nabeta Gyokuei and with the Maruyama-style painter Suzuki Kason. He started as a painter, but around the turn of the century he also turned to making illustrations, starting during the Sino-Japanese war (1894-5), and later as a kuchi-e artist. In the latter capacity he made many illustrations for the serialized novel Demon Gold.
His work is characterized by by its delicate lines and soft colours, and shows western influences.
