NOTE: Japanese names are generally represented in the traditional fashion, with the family name first, followed by the given name or the “artist name.”  (Exceptions are made for artists who are/were long-term residents of foreign countries, e.g., Tsuguharu Léonard Foujita, and for contemporary artists in accordance with the artist’s [perceived] preference.)
