Komura Settai (1887-1940) was a Japanese artist who after a year of private lessons with the painter Araki Kampo (1831-1915), Settai entered the Tokyo Art School, where he specialized in Japanese-style painting. He graduated in 1908 and worked for the next few years for the prestigious art journal, Kokka. Already by 1914, however he was earning his living as an illustrator and graphic artist. In 1924 he also began designing stage sets and from that time on was involved in numerous theater and film productions. As a print artist, he was heavily influenced by the work of the mid-18th century ukiyo-e masters, Harunobu and Buncho.
