    I have a tile painting by H. Kanaya. Where can I find information about this artist and this artist's work?

    On the back of the 3-tiled painting are some notes about the artist:

    "H. Kanaya, a young artist of Kyoto who finds greater inspiration in the masters of the Edo period than in the works of Wester painters. His traditional Oriental techniques are finding an increasing following among the sophisticated art lovers."

    Re: Artist H. Kanaya

    I also have a painting by Kanaya on three ceramic tiles with the same type of label glued on the wooden back. My painting has two brown and grey-blue birds sitting on a think branch surrounded by plum colored blossoms. I noticed that you posted your query two years ago. Did you receive any useful information? I don't know anything else about the artist, I found your query when I did a Web search for the artist.

    I did receive one private message from someone else with a tile Kanaya painting, but that person didn't know anything about the artist either.

    I was given a set of two, three framed tiles by H.Kanaya.They are of mallard ducks landing upon a pond. My uncle was in Japan and purchased them sometime in the late fifties. Mine also have the wooden backs with the short biography. Where do we go for more information or to find more of Kanaya's work?

    I still have not been able to track down any information about this artist. Either this person is still an unknown and the paintings are worthless, or they're very rare and are priceless! Either way, I like mine!
