Nishimura Goun 西村五雲


Source: Guide to Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints: 1900-1975, Helen Merritt, University of Hawaii Press, 1992, p. 110 and miscellaneous sources.
Nishimura Goun was born, and lived, in Kyoto and was initially the pupil of Kishi Chikudo (1826-1897) before studying under Takeuchi Seihō (1864-1942). He showed at the Nihon Bijutsu Kyokai (Japan Art Association) and then with the Zenkoku Kaiga Kyoshinkai (National Competitive Painting Exhibition). He was a prize winner at the first Bunten* in 1907 and was a member and frequent juror of the Teiten*. He was also a member of the Imperial Art Academy and a professor at various Kyoto Art schools. His subjects included flowers, fish (see silk scroll below), animals, birds and bunraku puppets. He was a Kyoto School painter and considered to be heir to Seiho in style.  Primarily a painter, woodblocks were a minor part of his oeuvre.  Merritt notes that his prints were carved by Yamagishi Kazue (c. 1893-1966) and printed by Nishimura Kumakichi who were responsible carving and printing the Supplements of the Complete Works of Chikamatsu Manzaemon.
