Nakajima Kiyoshi

 
 

The bijin-ga artist Nakajima Kiyoshi (中島 潔) was born in Manchuria, China, in April 1943. He returned to Japan after the war and lived in Saga, Kyushu. Kiyoshi was deeply affected by his mother's death from cancer, and it is probably this experience that led him to draw his most famous woodblock prints of young ladies in a dreamy, melancholy mood, in harmony with the wind. He is also well-known throughout Japan as a painter and illustrator of children's books.
