Western picture painter, Sadakazu Watanabe (1917-1981 years) was born in Aomori-shi. We came to want to be painter triggered by death of older brother and we went to Tokyo at 18 years old and learned at Kawabata image school. Thereafter we devoted ourselves to production in sincere manner and we were selected for the 16th pilgrimage exhibition for the first time in 1941 (Showa 16) and walked painting steadily, but it fell down to illness by oneself and was forced to return. Teiichi who survived miraculously, and went back played an active part mainly on picture in Japanese style fair and, after the dispatch of troops to pass to twice, continued developing fantastic, peace and calm original style of painting afterwards.
