About the artist:
Teruhide Kato (1936-2015)  had studied at Kyoto Art College. He was a famous kimono fashion designer.
When he was 50 years old, he decided to follow his real passion, and became a traditional Kyoto woodblock artist.
Success remained with the artist. After a gallery exhibition in New York and a book publication of his works titled “Kyoto Romance” he is as famous as a woodblock artist as he used to be as a kimono designer.
