Fantasy and Literature: Relationship between Kiyokata and Novelists

Kaburaki Kiyokata had loved to read since childhood. And the exchange with famous novelists of his time, such as Izumi Kyōka and Ozaki Kōyō made him grow as a major illustrator. Even after becoming a Japanese style painter, he had painted the works based on a literature again and again. His deep affection for literature had enriched his art.
