Art of Kasho Takabatake

Kasho Takabatake and Yayoi Museum and
It's too bad that the beautiful images are so small on the above sites.  I did however manage to find these larger images on various sites.  This is an excellent Japanese artist/illustrator. I found more images and information at Magazine Images of Women and Girls in the Illustrations of Takabatake Kasho, 1925–1937.
