- Print artist. Noda was born in Tokyo and studied under the 'Nihonga'-style painter Terazaki Kogyo (1866-1919) and for a year from 1896 at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts. The latter gave him the sketching ability to earn his living as an illustrator for the Osaka 'Asahi Shinbun' newspaper, which he joined in 1907. In Osaka he did book illustrations, including those for the novel 'Kofu' by Natsume Soseki (186 7-1916), and became a friend of Kitano Tsunetomi (q.v.). Here he was in contact with the publisher Kanao Tanejiro (1991, 0805, 022) and became a leading light in the artistic life of the city. He returned to Tokyo in 1917. Later in his career he concentrated more and more on pure 'Nihonga' painting, specialising in religious and historical subjects of China and Japan. After the Pacific War he continued to live in the Tokyo area and was highly regarded in official artistic circles in Japan.
