A large ceramic sculpture by Ito Tadayoshi titled London no Onna (Woman from London). The naïve young figure sits in deep contemplation on a square plinth, head cocked to one side, lost in her own thoughts. The figure is 54 cm (21-1/4 inches) tall, 15.5 x 19 cm (6-1/4 x 7-1/2) across the base. This is published in the book “Chokoku-ka Ito Tadayoshi” published 1992 (a copy is included with the piece). Due to size the cost of shipping will be accrued separately.
Ito Tadayoshi was born in Yokaichi, Mie prefecture, in 1919. At the age of 11 his mother passed away and he came of age during the difficulties of the second world war. In 1946 he was first accepted into the Nitten National Exhibition. From then on he exhibited often with the Chunichi Art Exhibition, and from 1954 also exhibited with the Salon de Juin in Tokyo. He moved to Brazil in 1957, where he was based until 1970, returning to Japan after touring Western Europe and North America. While in Brazil he participated several times in the Bienal de Sao Paulo, among others. He died in Toyoda City, Aichi prefecture in 1993.
