Hasegawa Isamu was born in 1925 in Kyoto, son of famed porcelain artist Hasegawa Hakuho. He studied under both his father and Kusube Yaichi from whom he may have received his propensity for form. He was first accepted into the Nitten in 1953, and exhibited there consistently garnering several awards. He received the Kyoto Shinbun Prize among others at the Kofukai Ten, and works were purchased by the Ministry of Foreign affairs as gifts to foreign dignitaries.
