Footnotes

  • Famous for his cartoons and illustrations for books and newspapers, Kondo Koichiro worked in Western style during his early career but switched to atmospheric Japanese-style landscape painting during the second decade of the twentieth century. He traveled widely in Japan, including Hokkaido, as well as to China and Europe, where he captured the attention of André Malraux, who included a Japanese-style ink painter named Kama, based on Kondo, in his novel La Condition humaine.
