ReviewTatsuo TAKAYAMA (1912-2007) is a renowned Japanese painter and is best known for his nihonga (Japanese paintings) and the renewal of the genre — particularly of colors, under the influence of Gauguin — he initiated. He was also a talented engraver and draftsman. At the sight of some of his figures and landscapes, the reader would probably remember Odilon Redon more than Gauguin. A beautiful artbook, finely crafted and edited.
