Author profile

Shigeru Hatsuyama

He was born in Tokyo. After graduating from elementary school, he worked in a metal shop and a pattern painting studio, later studying under the Japanese painter Sengai Igawa.

In 1919, he drew attention by creating the cover for the fairy tale magazine “Otogi no sekai”. From then on, he handled a large number of children’s book projects, such as the picture magazine “Kodomo no Kuni”. While being inspired by Western art trends, he based his work on the tradition and aesthetic sense of Japanese decorative painting and ukiyo-e, developing original works.

In 1927, he co-founded the Japan Children’s Picture Book Artists Association with Takeo Takei and Kiichi Okamoto. He also did a lot of work in woodblock printing.
