#767: Kiyoshi (category: artist)


Kiyoshi Kobayakawa was a Japanese painter in the 19th and 20th centuries. He learned to draw pictures under Kiyokata Kaburaki (refer to #756), who was good at creating bijin-ga (paintings of beautiful women).

Due to the aftereffect of polio, Kiyoshi had to draw pictures only with his left hand. Also, he later started making woodblock paintings and left many works.
