Hakuhô, Hirano

Very little is known about Hirano Hakuhô (平野白峰), who was a Nihonga (Japanese-style) painter. He was born in Kyoto and appears to have been self-taught. In the 1930s he published a small number of prints with Shôzaburô Watanabe or privately published, some of which were issued in limited, numbered editions. There seem to be six known designs that were published.
