Miyazaki Yūzen

▪ Japanese painter
also called  Miyazaki Yūzensai  
born , Kyōto, Japan

      Japanese painter credited with perfecting a rice-paste dyeing method that made possible the economical production of sumptuously decorated cloth. He gave his name to the process (yūzen-zome) by which elaborate designs and pictures were drawn on silk with a rice-paste coating. Later, yūzen came to denote the cloth produced in this way and also the kind of designs (yūzen-moyō) created by Miyazaki Yūzen. The rich, colourful yūzen cloth, a product of Kyōto, is still popular in the 20th century.
