Japanese print artist and painter Kunzo Minami graduated from the Tokyo School of Fine Arts in 1907, and then moved to Europe. In the United Kingdom he studied British art, especially the Pre-Raphaelites, and while there, became a friend of Tomimoto Kenkichi (1886-1963). In 1909, Minami went to France, and traveled through Europe, returning to Japan in 1910. He became known as a woodblock print artist, a watercolorist, and as a “mildly impressionistic painter with a touch of pointillism in his work.” Minami worked as a professor in the Tokyo School of Fine Arts from 1932-43.
