Ogisu Takanori (1901-1986), he moved to Paris in 1927. Although he was forced to repatriate temporarily after the outbreak of World War II, he became the first Japanese permitted to reside in Paris following the war and subsequently lived there until his death at the age of 84. His poetic portraits of the streets and buildings of the French capital won him wide acclaim in Europe, and a medal with Ogisu's relief was issued by France's mint bureau in 1982 to honour his accomplishments.
