Biography Henmi, Takashi (1895 - 1944)

Born in Wakayama, Henmi Takashi started making woodblock prints after seeing the posthumous exhibition dedicated to his townsman Tanaka Kiy˘kichi, who had died of tuberculosis in 1915. Henmi Takashi was one of the exhibitors at the first Nihon S˘saku Hanga Ky˘kai exhibition in 1919. He was also a founding member of the Nihon Hanga Ky˘kai. He contributed to many Hanga magazines (Shi to Hanga, Kaze, a.o.), and to the series One Hundred Views of New Tokyo - Shin Tokyo hyakkei. He was not a professional printmaker, but still highly esteemed.
