Biography Terazaki, Kgy 寺崎 広業 (1866 - 1919)

Terasaki Kōgyō was born in Akita in 1866. He moved to Tokyo in 1888 where he studied many styles of Japanese and Chinese painting, until he developed his own rather eclectic style. He was a teacher at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts under Okakura Tenshin, and left with him to found the Nihon Bijutsuin. After Okakuras retirement he returned to Tokyo School of Fine Arts. He was also a member of the Art Committee of the Imperial Household.
His landscapes show the delicate Japanese style and colouring, yet at the same time they also show Western influence.
He was mainly a painter, but he also produced woodblock prints of bijin, kacho-e and war prints of the Russo-Japanese war, where he served as a war correspondent. On his prints Terazaki Kōgyō often used the name Sōzan (also pronounced Shūzan).
