Biography Furukawa, Rysei (1893 - 1968)

Furukawa Rysei was born in Hagawa, Tochigi prefecture in 1893. After studying Japanese-style painting under Yuki Somei at the Kawabata Painting School, Furukawa Rysei graduated in the same subject at the Japanese-style painting division at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts in 1924. Around the same time he taught himself woodblock carving and printing, and he exhibited his prints at the Nihon Ssaku-Hanga Kykai and the Nihon Hanga Kykai. In 1928 he became a teacher of painting at a secondary school, but he continued making prints until 1936 when illness forced him to stop. Only in 1951 did he resume making woodblock prints. In 1972 and 1975 two memorial exhibitions of his work were held, at the Riccar Museum and at the Tochigi Prefectural Art Museum respectively.
