Biography Yamaguchi, Susumu (1897 - 1983)

In 1920 Susumu Yamaguchi moved to Tokyo. There he studied with Kuroda Seiki and at the Aoibashi Western Painting Institute. Already in 1920 he exhibited with the Nihon S˘saku-Hanga Ky˘kai, and in 1928 he became a member. He was a founding member of the Nihon Hanga Ky˘kai, and he contributed to many hanga magazines before WWII.
From printing with oil-base paints he changed to water-base paints. In 1945 the carpet bombings of Tokyo forced him to return to Nagano prefecture, where he had been born. He became a farmer, making and exhibiting prints at the same time.
