Kamisaka Sekka (1866-1942) was born in Kyoto to a Samurai family.
His talents for art and design were recognised early.
He eventually allied himself with the traditional Rimpa school of art
however as traditional Japanese styles became unfashionable,
Japan infused tradition with modernism. In 1910, Sekka was sent to
Glasgow where he was heavily influenced by Art Nouveau.
