Biography


Terasawa Kōtarō 寺澤孝太郎  (fl. ca. 1915) - Outside of being listed as one of the artists who contributed to the short-lived magazine Shin Nigao, the only English language reference I've seen to this artist appeared in the June 1909 issue of the arts magazine International Studio (An Illustrated Magazine of Fine and Applied Art)1, which cited him as an example of a Japanese artist showing "progress in Western methods..." in the recent "Fine Arts Exhibition held a few months ago in Tokio under the auspices of the Department of Education..."  His painting Going Home, shown below, is described as depicting a "characteristic type of the native labourer."
