I came across this article today announcing a current exhibition of Itchiku Kubota’s kimonos at the Canton Museum of Art (Canton Ohio), the second of two stops in a U.S. tour of his work. Kubota’s name is new to me, as well as his “yuzen” technique for textile painting. Click here for more images of his work and here for Wikipedia’s entry on him.

Above, a detail of a Kubota kimono.
