Koshiro ONCHI
Born in Tokyo in 1891. Was influenced by Yumeji Takehisa's works. Studied oil painting and sculpture at Tokyo School of Art. But left the school before graduation. Published an illustrated book of poems "Tsukuhae" with Shizuo Fujimori and Kyosuke Tanaka in 1914. Designed and drew illustrations for a book of poems by Sakutaro Hagiwara "Bark at moon" in 1917.

In 1928, the book design for "Hakusyu Kitahara Complete Works" established him as a book designer in Japan. Left a major mark on the Japanese art history as a pioneer of abstract art and a leader of printmakers in Japan. Also published excellent illustrated books such as "Voluptuous flight", "A fairy tale of the sea", "A book of natural history" and "Insects, Fishes and shells". Died at the age of 63 in 1955.
