Miwa Chosei (1901-1983) was born in Niigata prefecture, the son of a Western Style (oil) painter. He was sent to Kyoto to study at the age of fourteen, where he would graduate the Kyoto Municipal School of Arts (Mod Kyoto University of Fine Art). He entered the tutelage of Domoto Insho, a progressive and very talented young artist at that time. His work was first accepted into the Teiten (mod Nitten) in 1927, and he would subsequently be awarded there for the first time in 1934. He became the lead student at Insho’s school from its establishment. He was an important member of the progressive movement in the post war years.
