Matsubayashi Keigetsu (1876-1963) was born in Yamaguchi, home of Hagi-yaki. He studied painting under Noguchi Yukoku (1825-1898) in Tokyo. He exhibited at the Bunten and the Nitten and was president of the Nihon Nangain and Nihon Bijutsu Kyôkai. Alongside such names as Tomioka Tessai (1837–1924) he is considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century Nanga. He was named a member of the Imperial Art Academy and was awarded the Order of Cultural Merit for his life’s work in 1959. He is held in the MOMA and Tokyo National Museum among many others.
