(Photograph of painting of Tokugawa Ieyasu) (徳川家康像)

SHIMOOKA Renjo 下岡 蓮杖

Renjo produced many Japanese genre photographs, but he also made portraits of famous people such as the portrait of NAKAJIMA Saburosuke . Here we a portrait of Ieyasu Tokugawa made by photographing a drawing. It’s difficult to know for certain but it seems probable that the drawing from which this photograph was made was also done by Renjo. It’s possible that after carte-de-visite sized portraits became popular, there was demand for photographs of famous people in the same size and format.
