Shuzo Ikeda (born 1922)
Shuzo Ikeda was born in 1922 in Kisakata-machi, Akita Prefecture. He graduated from school in 1945, taught in Akita from 1946--1955, and then worked in Tokyo as a Hanga artist. Shuzo carefully employed the texture of wood in his prints (see 'Flower and Boy' below), and specialised in styalised wide-eyed children (see 'Camellia Sasanqua' below) with flowers, birds, insects, sacred stone images, and native dolls. He often signed his drawings as "Shu. Ikeda".
