狩野光男 – 画家 / Teruo Kanoh – Painter

 

1930年12月3日、旧浅草区新吉原角町に生まれる。両親と兄、妹4人の8人家族。1945年3月10日(当時14歳)の東京大空襲にて両親、妹2人を失う。

Teruo Kanoh was born on 3 December 1930 in  Asakusa’s Shinyoshiwara-sumicho district. During the 10 March 1945 firebombing raid on Tokyo, Kanoh, 14 years old at the time,  lost both of his parents and two sisters. The following paintings by Mr. Kanoh visually communicate some of the experiences that people in Tokyo faced during and in the immediate aftermath of the Tokyo air raids.  We thank him  for his kind permission to feature his paintings on JapanAirRaids.org. Mr. Kanoh’s own explanations (at present in Japanese only) follow most of the images.
