Chiura Obata: Setting Sun on Sacramento Valley, California (1930)
As Japanese-Americans, Obata and his family were interned at the Tanforan detention center in California during WWII. Along with other artists, he established an art school in the camp; teachers taught courses for over 600 people, including figure drawing, still life, architectural drawing, anatomy, and commercial art. When the internees were moved to the Topaz War Relocation Center in Utah, Obata founded the Topaz Art School. After the war, he was reinstated as an instructor at the University of California, Berkeley.
