Object literature: Akamatsu Unrei was an Osaka painter born in 1892.
He studied painting with the famous nanga painter Himejima Chikugai. At a relatively young age he already proved a true master of nanga, surpassing the talents of his teachers and finding a new, personal way of looking at nanga. His paintings were often exhibited with the Bunten, Teiten and Nitten and he was a member of the Nihon Nanga-in. He died in 1958.
