Sakue in his studio in spring 1992, at an early stage with “Cityscape” (charcoal on canvas).
On the plywood board in the foreground is a sketch made on the back of a calendar,
which was used for the main drawing.
On the left to the rear is a trunk used by Sakue when he traveled to Europe in 1968,
a gift from the students of the Hosei University art club.
(The completed “Cityscape 1992” can be seen at the end of the Sakue’s A to Z Glossary).

Sakue prepares for a solo exhibition in his studio (ca. 1971-1972), before he renovated it,
completing works begun in Europe. Various cabinets, also made by him,
can be seen in the background to the right, and under the window.
