Saegusa SOUTAROU (1911-2006) Biography :
Born in 1911 in Kagawa Prefecture, he became a recognized sculptor at an early age and participated in many prestigious salons where he won many awards. His works are collected by museums and also exhibited as monuments in the major cities of Japan. A great art lover, Saegusa is known for a variety of themes and postures, reflecting traditional Japanese culture with the addition of a few abstract elements. His works are highly appreciated for their artistic beauty. After retiring from a professorship at Nagoya University of the Arts, he created many large-scale bronze monuments and sculptures. Even in his 90s, he continued to create beautiful works of art.
