Born into a family of wealthy merchants in Ise Kunizu, he was a businessman who held important corporate positions including president of the Hyakugo Bank, but he also displayed a variety of artistic talents, including calligraphy, painting, tea ceremony, haiku, and photography, and was known as ``the Rosanjin of the East and the half-dead child of the West.'' This is the work of Handeko Kawakita, who has been praised as one of the best artists in Japan. It is a work that is distorted as a whole, and you can get a glimpse of the character of a half-dead child.
