Asari Boats

Okuyama Gihachirō (1907‒1981) was a versatile artist who worked both in commercial and fine arts. In 1928 he designed advertisements for the Japan Wool Company and the label for the Japanese whiskey Nikka. In 1931 he established the Tokyo Advertisement Art Association and the New Print Society (fine arts print group) in 1942. He produced over one thousand original prints as well as facsimile prints from Japanese and Chinese paintings and ukiyo-e prints by artists such Hokusai and Hiroshige.
