*Gekka Minagawa*
He is the foremost dyer of the Showa era.
He was born in Kyoto in 1892, and learned Yuzen dying from Suisen Yasuda and Japanese-style painting from Kako Tsuji.
While working on a study of natural dye and the ancient dyeing, he established a technique which adopted pictorialism to yuzen.
He worked active as a pioneer of the artistic dying world.
He produced tapestries and many other decorations of the Yamahoko floats of the Gion Festival for many years.
He passed away at the age of 94 in 1987.
