    Ide Gakusui (1899-1982) was a lesser known artist whose print designs were published by Watanabe Shozaburo in the late 1940's and 50's. Born in Yamanashi in 1899, Gakusui studied Japanese-style painting with Yamonouchi Tamon and Araki Kanpo. He moved to China in 1929 and lived there until after World War II. In 1949, he began to collaborate with Watanabe on bird and flower designs. He is best known for his prints of large cranes and herons. Much of Gakusui's work is realistic, resembling the designs of Ohara Koson and other kacho-e artists. However, two of his crane prints are dynamic linear designs that are unusual for shin hanga.
