Masayasu Uchida


On my first trips to Japan, I purchased four landscape prints by Japanese artist and printmaker, Masayasu Uchida.  Had I more walls in my house I probably would have purchased more.  There isn’t much biographical material on the artist. I know only that he was born in 1922 and  graduated in 1943 at the then Technical High School in Yokohama training in architecture.  His creations are primarily landscapes often with seasonal references.  His profile can be viewed (in Japanese) at the Uchida Masayasu Gallery.
